Musicians from the Feis Rois program have spent several months working alongside acclaimed fiddler and composer Duncan Chisholm to research a local story, create a film, and create an original sound track to their short film. The project has allowed the young people to explore cultural heritage and learn new skills in composition, film-making, research and ethnology.
Fèis Rois enables people of all ages to access, participate in and enjoy the traditional arts and Gaelic language through a diverse programme of activities in Ross & Cromarty, across Scotland and beyond.
Based in Dingwall, Fèis Rois is widely recognised as a national leader in the arts, particularly in music education. The organisation aims to give young people and lifelong learners the opportunity to experience and engage with traditional music and Gaelic culture in a way that supports them in developing their social skills and inspires them to reach their full potential.
