A' chomharrachadh Mairead Faye Sheathach

Gaelic Gàidhlig

[Iain MacAonghais - Preseantair] Nise, tha beatha Mairead Faye Sheathach agus an cruinneachadh de dh’ òrain Gàidhlig a rinn i ga chomharrachadh ann am pìos dràma-ciùil ùr. Bidh Eun Beag Chanaigh air a thaisbeanadh ann an grunn àiteachean le Theatre Nàiseanta na h-Alba agus tro fhèis Blas. Fhuair Shona NicDhòmhnaill againn fhèin cothrom air blasad fhaighinn air na bhios ron luchd-èisteachd agus mìneachadh carson a tha an tachartas cudromach.

[Pòl MacCaluim] Sin rud a tha cudromach mu dheidhinn dhealbhan-cluiche mar seo. Gur e an fhìrinn a thèid a chur tarsainn. A chionn, tha e uabhasach fhèin cudromach an obair a rinn i. Ghlèidh i dualchas agus ceòl agus eachdraidh is ùrnaighean is òrain nan daoine agus ghlèidh i iad mar a thug iadsan seachad dhìth e.

[Shona NicDhòmhnaill – Neach-aithris] Tha earrannan à fèin-eachdraidh beatha Mairead, litrichean, dealbhan pearsanta agus criomagan film à beatha nan eilean air an cleachdadh airson an dràma ciùil.

[Fiona NicChoinnich] Bha mise a’ coimhead airson deagh eisimpleir de na seòrsa stoidhlichean agus na h-òrain eadar-dhealaichte, bha na seinneadairean eadar-dhealaichte agus òrain aotrom agus òrain nas doimhne agus òrain le sgeulachdan dìreach a’ dèanamh seòrsa dealbh air beatha ann an Uibhist agus Canaigh cuideachd.

[Shona NicDhòmhnaill – Neach-aithris] Thig an dràma air feadh na Gàidhealtachd, ach tha e a’ tòiseachadh ‘s a’ crìochnachadh anns na h-eileanan a b’ fhaisge air cridhe Mairead.

[Fiona NicChoinnich] Tha sinn a’ tòiseachadh ann an Uibhist agus chan eil àite sam bith eile far am bu chòir dhuinn a bhith tòiseachadh ach ann an seo, far an dh’ fhuair Mairead na h-òrain, far an dh’ fhuair Mairead an cànan agus far an dh’ fhuair Mairead an teaghlach aice. Agus tha mi cinnteach gum bi a h-uile duine ann an seo ag èisteachd, gu math mionaideach, ri na h-òrain agus na faclan.

[Shona NicDhòmhnaill – Neach-aithris] Agus tha an ceòl a tha air a chleachdadh cudromach na dhòigh fhèin.

[Dòmhnall Seathach] We wanted to have instrumentation that reflected Margaret Faye Shaw’s love of other forms of music, like jazz and classical music and also her love of the piano, which was a big deal.

[Shona NicDhòmhnaill – Neach-aithris] ‘S e cothrom a bh’ ann dhan luchd-ciùil fhèin eòlas a chur air an obair aig Mairead.

[Innes MacGilleBhàin] Cha robh fios agam air cho mòr ‘s a bha an stòras a bha i air fhàgail dhuinn oir bha mi air cluinntinn mu dheidhinn Mairead roimhe seo, ach cha robh fhios agam air an uimhir de dh’ òrain a bh’ aice.

[Shona NicDhòmhnaill – Neach-aithris] Agus ‘s e sin fear de na h-amasan a th’ aig an dràma-ciùil seo, ainm agus obair Mairead Faye Sheathach a chur fa chomhair luchd-èisteachd ùr. Shona NicDhòmhnaill. BBC An Là, Uibhist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Celebrating Margaret Faye Shaw

English Beurla

[Iain MacInnes - Presenter] Now, the life of Margaret Faye Shaw and the collection of Gaelic songs she made are being celebrated in a piece of musical drama. The ‘Little Bird of Canna’ will be shown in many areas by the National Theatre of Scotland and through the Blas festival. Our Shona MacDonald got a chance to experience what was ahead of the audience and information on why it was important.

[Paul MacCallum] That is what is important about musical dramas like this. That it is the truth that is put across. As it was awful important the work that she did. She protected heritage and music, history and prayers and songs of the people and she recorded them as they gave them to her.

[Shona MacDonald – Reporter] Sections of the autobiography of the life of Margaret, letters, personal pictures and film clips of life on the Island have been used for the music drama.

[Fiona MacDonald] I was looking for good examples of the sort of different styles and songs, the singers were different and the songs light and deeper songs and songs with stories just doing a sort of picture of life in Uist and Canna too.

[Shona MacDonald – Reporter] The drama will go all over the Highlands, but it will start and end in the Islands that were closest to Margaret’s heart.

[Fiona MacDonald] We are starting in Uist and there isn’t another place where we should start, but here, where Margaret got her songs, where Margaret got the language and where Margaret got her family. And I am sure that everyone will be listening, really closely, with the songs and the words.

[Shona MacDonald – Reporter] And the music has an important use of its own right.

[Donald Shaw] We wanted to have instrumentation that reflected Margaret Faye Shaw’s love of other forms of music, like jazz and classical music and also her love of the piano, which was a big deal.

[Shona MacDonald – Reporter] It was a chance for the musicians to get to know Margaret’s work.

[Innes Whyte] I did not know how big the store was that she left for us as I had heard of Margaret before this, but I did not know the number of songs she had.

[Shona MacDonald – Reporter] And that is one of the aims of the musical drama, to direct the name and work of Margaret Faye Shaw to a new audience. Shona MacDonald BBC An Là, Uist.
