It's been a busy weekend of launch concerts in Glasgow and North Uist. A great time was had by all, and Julie and Eamon would like to thank all the folk who came out and supported them! Thanks are also due to all the people who helped set up the launches - too many to mention everyone, but our sincere thanks to you all, especially Rona and Uisdean. Julie & Eamon headed to Glasgow then, where they filmed for a project by Maggie McInnes called "Oran na Mna". This is an interesting idea which explores the concept of the role of women in Gaelic song, which will be broadcast later in the year. Also involved were the lovely Mary Smith, Karen Matheson, Flora MacNeil, Alyth MacCormack, Mairi Morrison and Kathleen MacInnes.

Lots of dates coming in for the summer - we'll keep you informed as soon as we get the go ahead to announce them.
