Donald S Murray with Ceitlin Lilidh

His People's Tongue

County Buildings
Sun 29 Sep

Growing up, like many of his generation Donald S Murray had been dismissive of Gaelic. Two men altered that view: songwriter Murdo Macfarlane and the playwright and novelist, Norman Malcolm Macdonald. Using their words, music and those of other writers, he explains how his perception of his people’s tongue changed. In Gaelic and English. With songs from Ceitlin Lilidh. [228]
