New Tobar an Dualchais CD of Gaelic songs and rhymes

Tobar an Dualchais (TAD) has launched a CD of Gaelic songs and rhymes suitable for young children. For the CD, entitled Seinnibh Còmhla Rinn (Sing With Us), TAD chose some of the best material for children from its website. The CD and accompanying booklet promise to be a fantastic educational resource for Gaelic school and nursery children across the country.

New versions of the songs were recorded by three groups of school children: Gaelic-medium pupils at Plockton Primary School; Còisir na h-Òige BSGI (the Inverness Gaelic Primary School choir); and four pupils who attend Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu (Glasgow Gaelic School).  In addition to the 20 songs performed by school pupils, the original versions also appear on the CD, mostly made in the 1950s in people’s homes across the Highlands and Islands.
