30,000 Tune in to Weekend Ceilidhs

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar would like to thank the people of the Western Isles for their continued support of the Social Media Activities Programme. Last weekend saw 30,000 tune in once again, as Norrie “Tago” Maciver and Calum Martin hosted online ceilidhs.

The Programme has been designed to help keep people entertained during lockdown and was launched at the start of April. The high levels of engagement have continued and it has been great to see our community engaging with eachother online while enjoying the wide variety of talented artists we have in the Western Isles.

Lead singer of Skipinnish Norrie “Tago” Maciver said: “I have been doing live shows every weekend since lockdown started but my first concert for the Comhairle was one of the best I have done. It was great to play to all the folk back home in Lewis and the feedback from everyone was just amazing. I love interacting with the listeners and answering their questions.”

This week we will have Iain Costello live on Friday night at 9pm and Willie Campbell live at 9pm on Saturday. There will also by a new mystery quiz master for our weekly quiz on Thursday at 7:30pm.
