Guthanna na nOileán is a series of events focusing on traditional singing in the Gaeltachtaí and in Sardinia. Events will feature concerts, including by Tenores di Bitti from Sardinia, along with a conference called Caomhnú Guthanna na nOileán (Preserving Island Voices) and the presentation of a film Aisling Gheal, by Dónal Ó Céilleachair.
Guthanna na nOileán will explore ancient traditions and current singing practices, and the means by which the traditions are passed on to the next generation. It will provide an opportunity for artistic exchange among participating singers, and foster artistic links between the Gaeltachtaí and Sardinia.
