Back for a fifth visit to Newlands Activity Centre Fèis Rois is one of Scotland’s leading youth arts organisations providing opportunities for over 3,000 young people to play music and perform each year.
Fèis Rois visited Newlands for the First time in Aug 2013 and were a huge hit with the Newlands audience.
For 2017 Fèis Rois will once again bring its exciting mix of Youth, Traditional Gaelic music, and culture to Newlands for a Concert and Family Ceilidh.
New for 2017 is an afternoon workshop open to all level of players.
Fèis Rois Ceilidh Trail
Fèis Rois launched its acclaimed Ceilidh Trail project in 2000. The first Ceilidh Trail was coordinated by Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis who spent three years working at Fèis Rois as an Education Officer. This first Ceilidh Trail gave 10 young musicians a summer job performing across Ross & Cromarty.
The Ceilidh Trail is a paid summer job and a professional development opportunity for young people aged 16 – 25 who are considering a performance career in traditional Scottish music. It is also a cultural tourism project bringing high quality traditional music performances to communities across Scotland throughout the peak tourist period in July and August.
Don’t miss a fantastic evening of Ceilidh Dancing which will include lively reels, jigs and beautifully crafted Gaelic songs.
Catering – BBQ & Cash Bar available
