Jonathan Smith


Musician and artist Jonathan Smith has produced a revamped, electronica version of 11 tracks from the original Ceòl a' Bràdhagair CD, with all profits going to UCBA. Jonathan has strong family links to Bragar through his father. He spent the later part of his school years here, and has been a frequent visitor to the family home in Bragar, where his mother still lives.

The CD is available from Grinneabhat, through Isle20, and as a digital download.

Ceòl a’ Bràdhagair 


Ceòl a' Bràdhagair was originally a cassette tape recorded at a concert in Bragar School in 1981. It featured twenty traditional songs, many of them from the Bragar area. One of UCBAs first projects was to remaster the tracks and produce a CD.


The CD was launched in December 2014 at a cèilidh in the room in which it was originally recorded, and with some of the original artists singing. It is available to buy at Grinneabhat, from the Isle20 website or as a digital download.
