Nòs Ùr

Nòs Ùr (New Style), the first West European Minority Languages Song Competition will be held in Inverness in June of this year, according to this article. It is one of four regional finals which will be held in different parts of Europe, the winners from each will compete in the Pan-European Minority Languages Song Competition, Liet Lavlut, which will take place in Luleå in Sweden in October.

The competition aims to bring music in minority languages to a larger audience, to promote cultural and musical diversity, and to encourage and inspire a new generation of minority language singers and song writers. It will probably feature songs in such languages as Scottish Gaelic, Scots, Ulster Scots, Irish, Manx, Welsh, Cornish and Breton.

    Sounds great. I’m from Inverness but live in Edinburgh now – wish I could be home to attend.
