Aon Teanga

Aon Teanga

Date: Thursday 25 June, Déardaoin 25 Meitheamh 2015

Time: 8:00pm

Venue:  An Chultúrlann, Falls Road

The visit of Aon Teanga, (One Tongue), to An Chultúrlann on 25 June represents a unique opportunity to hear songs in  three principal international Gaelic languages, Irish Gaeilge, Scots Gaidhlig and Manx Gaelg.   Ruth Keggin (Isle of Man), Mary Anne Kennedy (Alba/Scotland) and Eoin Ó Ceannabháin (Conamara) are Aon Teanga and they will be launching their new album on the night. Aon Teanga is a  unique project, reuniting the song traditions of the Gaelic nations: Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. At one time, the Gaelic influence (politically, culturally, linguistically) extended down the length of Scotland, Ireland and Isle of Man. There has never been until now a project that unites the three Gaelic traditions.
