Fuaran is a heritage initiative established by Fèisean nan Gàidheal to encourage a new generation of Gaelic speakers and singers to actively engage in the research and collection of Gaelic songs in their local area.
In the past two years, over twenty young people aged 16-24 have taken part in training and song workshops, led by a host of leading Gaelic song and research experts.
This online resource provides a selection of some of the material that nine of our Fuaran participants have researched and recorded in their local communities.
On the Fuaran website you will find a page for each individual song researched. Each page includes:
- information and song words
- a downloadable audio recording of the song, performed by the researcher
- a video recording subtitled in Gaelic and English
- a downloadable PDF of the song words
Fuaran hope that this will become a useful resource for Gaelic singers and teachers, and that it will also encourage them to research and collect Gaelic songs.
