Glaschu

Produced by Mary Ann Kennedy and Nick Turner

You can take the girl out of Glasgow, but never Glasgow out of the girl, and in the spirit of Gaels eternal need to sing about home, this is my Gaelic love-song for the city in all its guises – the voices of arrivals in search of a new life and of those, like me, born and bred there with Gaelic as our first language.
