Oidhche nam Bàrd
Oidhche nam Bàrd is an annual event celebrating Scottish Gaelic poetry and poets, held in mid-January, about a week before the celebration of that famous Scots poet Robert Burns. This year the online event will be held on Saturday, Jan. 14, from 2 pm to 4 pm ET.
There are hundreds of Gaelic poets whose work is not well known outside the Scottish Gaelic community, and this event is an attempt to correct that. This year we will have a brief discussion of Gaelic poetry and an open mic. We ask that you register online here and let us know if you have a poem to share.
