THE BURNING HELL AND RANDOLPH’S LEAP An evening of gentle and quirky song The Canadian/Scottish collaboration of The Burning Hell and Randolph's Leap brings catchy melodies, intelligent lyrics and life-affirming performances to Skye audiences. Mathias Kom and Ariel Sharratt from Toronto have toured the UK and Europe extensively, charming audiences with a whimsical appeal which belies their somewhat stark band name of The Burning Hell, which featured on Radio 4's Loose Ends in December. "Somewhere in this dark universe - for all of us there is someone to duet with." Adam Ross of Randolph's Leap was most recently on Skye as part of the cast of Right Lines Productions' acclaimed theatre show Isle of Love, which visited Kilmuir Hall last year and brilliantly showcased his songs and delighted audiences. Tha fuinn leantaileach, faclan eirmseach agus taisbeanaidhean aoibhneach rim faicinn agus rin cluinntinn anns a’ chom-pàirteachadh Chanèidianach is Albannach, The Burning Hell agus Randolph’s Leap.

Christine Hanson’s wonderful musical compositions, accompanying what is probably Service’s best-known poem, make full play with the poetry’s different colours, nuances, tones and range — varying from traditional jigs, reels and country waltzes to southern swing and frosty musical soundscapes which perfectly evoke the bizarre, tragicomic setting of Service’s poem. Line-up: Christine Hanson, cellist/composer; Gerry Cambridge, poet, narrator, harmonica; Anna Massie, fiddle, guitar; Gordon Gunn, fiddle; Kevin Murray, guitar; Kevin McGuire, double bass; Rick Taylor, trombone; James MacIntosh, percussion; and Brian McAlpine, piano, box. **** Christine Hanson agus còmhlan de dh’ochdnar.

TICKETS Adult £8

Member £6 Student £4 Young person £4 Seasons Free Under 10 Free

What happens when your world is turned upside down and you have to find your own way?

… the sisters, now women, meet back in the forest where it all started.

When triplet sisters are abandoned in a forest by their father, three resolutions are made - one walks one way to find purpose, another the opposite way to find adventure and the third stays right where she is.

This contemporary fairytale from prolific playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer about determination and friendship is an inspiration to follow our dreams.

Over many years having grown forests, baked cakes, saved villages, crossed oceans, fought Vikings and built homes

Friday 31 May 7pm | Dihaoine 31 An Cèitean 7f SABHAL MÒR OSTAIG TDC MAIN HALL This legendary piece of Scottish theatre tells the story of the exploitation of Scottish lands, waters and people over the centuries.

Add a generous dose of Scottish rebellion and irreverence, throw in some live music and a riotous cèlidh – you’ve got yourself a rollicking great night out. Following 2015’s hugely successful restaging, this new version of The Cheviot takes the story back to its roots, visiting intimate art centres and community spaces, echoing the play’s original 1970s tour by 7:84. Come and experience the "Story that has a beginning, a middle but, as yet, no end…" Recommended Age Guide: 14+ PAGE 10 SEALL SPRING PROGRAMME 2019
