Songbook

Song Book

The island of Tiree is known for many things – its sunshine, its barley and its windsurfing. But an increasingly forgotten part of its heritage is the island’s traditional poetry and songs.

This book is an attempt to re-invigorate our tradition by producing twenty Tiree songs in a modern notation with translations, notes and music.

During the summer of 2011 Fèis Thiriodh asked islanders and visitors to list their favourite songs written by Tiree people. A ‘chart’ resulted in a ‘Top Twenty’ and the songs are listed in the order of their popularity.
