Music, poetry and song will feature in a new Clan Donald Gaelic Arts Week next month.

Supported by EventScotland’s Scottish Clan Event Fund, the week-long programme will celebrate the traditional Gaelic arts and their place in Clan Donald history.

The programme opens with a family day on Saturday 1 June, where there will be musical taster sessions, games and craft activities. Visitors can have a go at playing the clarsach (Scottish harp) and chanter, watch informal performances, and see an exhibition of artefacts from the museum’s archive.

Renowned artist, Pam Carter, will be holding her annual Skye exhibition from July to September.

The exhibition will be held at Gallery An Talla Dearg in Isle Ornsay.

A private view will be held on Saturday 20 July from 12pm until 2pm and the exhibition will run until 10 September 2019.

The triumphant revival of “arguably the single most important show in the whole history of Scottish theatre” comes to Skye in May.

Dundee Rep’s five-star sell-out musical interpretation of John McGrath’s The Cheviot, the Stag and the Black, Black Oil is touring Scotland in association with the National Theatre of Scotland.

Following 2015’s hugely successful restaging, this new version of The Cheviot takes the story back to its roots, visiting intimate art centres and community spaces, echoing the play’s original 1970s’ tour by 7:84 Scotland and comes to SEALL at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on Friday 31 May at 7.30pm.
