Are a group of Gaelic-speaking teenagers from around Inverness, who sing traditional and self-penned Gaelic songs and specialise in vocal harmony. The name Canntaireachd comes from the individual style of vocalisation adopted by pipers passing on tunes to students and other pipers with each piper his or her own distinct form of canntaireachd. The group were formed under the umbrella of Feis Na h-Oige, a volunteer-led Gaelic-medium teaching festival in the Inverness area. By way of an introduction to the art of Canntaireachd, the album kicks off with an example - an old archive recording featuring an unknown singer thought to be from South Uist. Fascinating!
