Iseabail T. Macdonald (NicDhomhnaill), tradition-bearer from South Uist

We are very excited to hear that Iseabail will be working with our Scottish music students this year.  She has written extensively for Gaelic TV and radio.  For example, Seachd: the inaccessible Pinnacle, or the BBC Gaelic programme, A' Choille.  She's regarded as a tradition-bearer in Gaelic song. She has contributed content to Education Scotland's website, Scotland's Songs.

Iseabail has also catalogued Gaelic material for Tobar an Dualchais.

Iseabail's full Gaelic name is Iseabail T. NicDhòmhnaill.  (In Gaelic, 'Nic' means 'daughter', so Iseabail's name means 'daughter of Donald'.)
