Celebrate Gaelic Awareness month with a free download of Goiridh Dòmhnullach’s performance of “Catriona ni’n Dùghaill” recorded during our concert “For Alex Francis” at St. Mary’s Parish Hall, Glendale in October 2013.
Goiridh Dòmhnullach is a Gaelic singer, composer, storyteller and educator and staff member at the Province of Nova Scotia’s Office of Gaelic Affairs. He is one of a musical Cape Breton family, the “Dougald” MacDonalds originating in Queensville, Inverness County. Goiridh had the opportunity to learn from some of Cape Breton’s best tradition-bearers. He was influenced by traditional musicians on both sides of his family. Goiridh prefers to sing in the traditional style he learned from the singers of his native Bràigh na h-Aibhneadh. Goiridh has performed in Scotland, Ireland, the US and Canada. He and his young son, Pàdruig, often sing together.
