Còmhla riutha 's iad a' clàradh an clàr ùr aca, a' siubhal gu fèisean tro'n t-Samhradh, tha sinn ag innse eachdraidh còmhlan cho cliùiteach 's cho soirbheachail 's a th' againn ann an Alba.

Chì sinn iad air chuairt, ann an tasglann agus ann an còmhradhleotha, a' sealltuinn mar a tha an guth iogantach aig Karen NicMhathain air toirt aire dhaoine gu ceòl Gàidhlig, air feadh an t- aoghail.

An cois sgeulachd Capercaillie, tha sinn aig innse mar a tha saoghal ceòl tradiseanta Albannach air atharrachadh, saoghal air nach robh mòran aithne ach a tha an diugh na dhualachas maireannach, beothail.
