Interests
Scottish Gaelic poetry and song. . . . Folk/traditional song (English, Scottish, Irish, French, German, Spanish, Italian - but Scottish Gaelic comes first). . . . Pop songs and rock and so on - for example Beatles, Françoise Hardy, Bobby Solo but not most stuff more recent than that. . . Classical music, especially opera, piano, and clarinet. . . . Musicals. . . . singing (mostly folk or traditional Scottish/Irish but have sung traditional songs in other languages and sung in amateur opera and musical productions too). . . . . Languages and linguistics. . . . . Computers. . . . . Seeing the world. . . . . Walking, climbing,scrambling (but climbing is out now, too old and arthritic, and I rarely get a scramble). . . . . Reading - linguistics and computing and maths and physics, science fiction, fantasy, history and historical novels and a lot of other stuff. . . . . Authors and singers I like: Jean Anouilh, Edith Piaff, Luke Kelly, Tommy Makem, Ciarán Bourke, Hamish Henderson, Hilaire Belloc, Calum Kennedy, Georges Brasens, Anne Lorne-Gillies, Ferruccio Tagliavini, Marcel Pagnol, Voltaire, Leslie Charteris, Jean Giradoux, RL Stevenson, Iain MacLaine, Iain MacIllEathain....and many more, too many to list!
