song-nights

How did we get this lucky? It’s song week at Iona and our special guest is the legendary Scots Gaelic singer Christine Primrose. Our own Pamela Jean Agaloos will host Monday 12th from 9pm then we’ll have a full on Gaelic song night on Sunday 18th from 7pm with the BBC in to film for the 2nd time this year. Come along, bring a song, it doesn’t have to be gaelic or require a santa hat, and there is a prize if you do both.

Session will not run on Monday 26th December, but we will be back in the New Year on January 2nd.
