Dancing, socialising and enjoying the push and pull of a crowd is something it’s likely none of us will be experiencing for a while still, as the Covid-19 lockdown continues.
But although we can’t physically dance and enjoy live music just yet, we can still experience that sense of community virtually.
Taking place on Saturday, February 27, the team at Harris Distillery are putting on a Cèilidh, featuring storytelling and live music, all which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home.
This is the second virtual Harris Distillery Cèilidh, with their previous event seeing over 600 people joining.
Hosts Iona Cairns and Calum Barker will be joined by three musical guests including singer/songwriter, Norrie Maciver, fiddle player, Robbie Greig and singer, Kim Carnie.
There will also be a special guest from the distillery dropping in to tell a few stories about life in Harris and help put a very local twist on the event.
The team said: “The Gaelic word Cèilidh (pronounced kay-lee) is often associated with kilts, highland dancing and a full band of Scottish musicians, but it is a word which simply means visiting and socialising with friends – which requires no fuss or formality.
“Harnessing the power of 21st technology, we thought we’d bring the best of a Harris cèilidh to you, as we invite people from all over the world to join us for some music and craic via their computer.
“All you need is yourself, and something to drink.”
