is a Mòd? A Mòd is a Gaelic song competition for
anyone who feels like they want to try their hand
(or voice!) at singing a Scottish Gaelic song.
We try to keep the competition low key and make
it fun for everyone - competitors as well as spectators.
rules are simple:
Sing one Scottish Gaelic song, preferably a slow
one like a waulking song, rowing song, lullaby,
òran mòr, or lament.
The competitors must supply the judge with two
copies of the Gaelic words to their songs. They
should also supply an English translation.
3. It is preferred that songs be learned by heart
prior to the competition without the need to resort
to written text.
Please keep the songs to a reasonable length.
