Taking its name from the Gaelic word for rainbow, this showcase concert is the culmination of a 2018 project for Scottish LGBT+ folk musicians, aimed at creating new work from their personal stories and community perspective. As well as chief organiser Pedro Cameron – former fiddler with The Dirty Beggars, now going solo as Man of the Minch – the workshop leaders were singers/songwriters Rachel Sermanni and Josie Duncan, fiddler Laura Wilkie, and accordionist Grant MacFarlane. Performances here will feature both tutors and participants, with a guest appearance by Gaelic singer Kim Carnie, and a short film chronicling the project.
Supported by Creative Scotland and Outspoken Arts Scotland the project aims give a platform and voice to the LGBT+ community in the traditional and folk music scene in Scotland.
