Margaret Bennett giving a talk in An Iodhlann in 1999 (G140)

Margaret Bennett giving a talk in An Iodhlann in 1999. 1999.173.60 – G140

Over the years we have made hundreds of audio recordings of  Tiree folk talking (in Gaelic and in English) about what it was like to live on Tiree in the old days, of experts giving talks on Tiree topics, of concerts and of ceilidhs. We hope, eventually, to make all of these available to hear on this website, but in the meantime you can access a sample of them below. You can also listen to many more Tiree recordings via the Tobar an Dualchais website: www.tobarandualchais.co.uk
