The weather was beautiful, and the site on the South River was ideal with gardens, the historic tavern and home, recreated rustic 18th century buildings, the fields, the trees, and the river. The first Language Village was quite a hit at Historic London Town’s 2019 Celtic Weekend.
Take a visual stroll through our first Language Village – then do join us at future festivals.
We had four scheduled activities each day
(and many unscheduled):
Scott MacIlleMhoire led the Introduction to Gàidhlig class
The Tents of the Village offered
information on the Gaelic language in its homeland and in North America . . .
. . . and a sample of Gaelic Music
Maraji played the harp throughout the event
The Village Children
(The children were particularly enthusiastic about the music)
(. . . and the dogs)
Participation was the hallmark of the Gaelic Song sessions
The Appin Regiment joined us for some waulking songs
