GalGael in the Papers

 GalGael are once again in the newspapers.
Journalist Deborah Anderson has a half page in the Evening Times on the new GalGael CD "Birlinn".
We held a well attended launch event on the 15th Sept. with around 100 people in the building. Songs from the CD were performed live to a very appreciative audience and we managed to sell some copies of the CD on the night.
Thanks to all who came along in support and it was good to see a few well ken't faces.

An intreped cohort of stalwart eco-warrior poet GalGael volunteers are in South Uist, braving gales and rollers blasting in from the Atlantic to erect coastal defences against rising sea levels. Or maybe they are in the hotel.
This is the second posse we have sent up as part of an Oxfam project where various community groups work on initiatives to share skills and empower each other. Read more in Gordon Blackstock's article in the recent Sunday Post.
