11B Ceitlin.
Ceitlin Smith is a Gaelic singer, songwriter from Ness in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, who now lives in Glasgow. When I met her she sang me a song that her great, great grandfather wrote, which has been passed down to her in the way of the oral tradition of the islands. As a child she would walk along the island shores with her father who would tell her the myths and legends of the area. These stories form the basis of her budding songwriting career, an important part of continuing the oral traditions.
