Halo, a Chàirdean! Runrig is a band occasionally mentioned in the course (Is sinne Runrig). I was very curious, and I looked the band up. Well, here's a site where you can listen for free, along with a few other great Gaelic artists! https://www.iheart.com/artist/runrig-31689/ Tell me what you think about Runrig below! :) Slàinte mhath!
There's a fair bit on YouTube. I like this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU-2QEIogxo
Also, I have just confirmed that it is Runrig playing the theme tune for Can Seo, the 1979 BBC TV learn Gaelic programme, which is also on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBVb1zbe32k
When I lived in Sussex I used to cry myself to sleep over "The Braes of Sutherland". I've made a solo arrangement of it for one voice and recorder.
Actually, I really like "Morag's Reel". Can't think why....
I have an iPod stuffed to the eyeballs with Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Mahler, Bruckner and so on, and the playlists end "Wagner, Wolfstone".
Tha an t-òran sin sgoinneil! I wondered who sang it. Tapadh leibh, a Mhòrag!
This is my Gàidhlig Spotify playlist. It's a work in progress, but I can especially recommend Mànran's Òran na cloiche, which is probably my favourite song on the playlist.
I have a collection of Gaelic music on spotify. It's under the name People of the Gaels Sheila Robertson Choma.
I "discovered" Runrig in 2005. I was looking for music for a new iPod. I've been a fan ever since. "The Mighty Atlantic" blew me away. Right now that iPod is playing "Hearts of Olden Glory." Runrig also led me to other Gaelic groups. Rawlins Cross from Nova Scotia, Wolfstone, Albannach is amazing, and the Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
