Please join us for the opening of Singing for the Sea at the Skye Sailing Club.

There will be very special performance by Portree and Strath Gaelic choirs at St. Columba Episcopal Church, Portree, from 6.30pm. Followed by a drinks reception, a sea-themed buffet by Relish and the chance to preview the film at the Skye Sailing Club, Scorrybreac Boathouse.

Singing for the Sea is a film installation by internationally acclaimed artist, Bethan Huws, which documents a group of eight female Bulgarian singers performing traditional songs on Sugar Sands, Northumberland, on the coast of the North Sea. The film was co-commissioned by Artangel in 1993. Artangel has now collaborated with ATLAS to bring the work to Skye as part of a broader project, entitled: A Work for the North Atlantic.

It is free of charge and open to all. Please be aware that there is a steep set of eleven steps to access the installation.
