It’s June already, which means a brand new Monthly Marker for this month! 🎶We’ll play this song 5 to 6 times a day for a full month on our radio station, and of course, it will be in our special CeltCast – Monthly Markers Spotify list! Hopefully, you will love it as much as our team does! 😍

Band: Breabach

Song: Bròg to the Future (Shoe to the Future)

This album traveled over the sea with Alex Sealgaire and Ilona Sealgaire CeltCast of the CeltCast Radio team. Last May, during their trip to Scotland, they visited the band in the beautiful Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre in Peebles! It was a lovely evening with an enthusiastic audience. 🎶

The booklet of the album tells us more about this song: 📜

  • The JCHS 1991 Grads Reel – comp. Kinnon Beaton
  • Fridays for Future – comp. Megan Henderson
  • Clach nam Bròg – comp. Conal McDonagh

Fridays for Future is a youth-led and organised global climate strike movement. Megan named this tune after taking part in the march during the COP26 in Glasgow with Ewan and their daughter Joey Grace. ‘Clach nam Bròg’ is named for a massive roadside boulder – the Shoe Stone – between Poolewe and Gairloch. Churchgoers travelling barefoot over the hill to Gairloch stopped here to put on their shoes before entering the village.

Have fun, listening to CeltCast Radio! 📻
