Tha Orcastra Ocaidichean Ghlaschu air a dhèanamh suas den tàlant as fheàrr de cheòladairean bho shaoghal ciùil Ghlaschu a thaobh jazz, clasaigeach, tuath-cheòl, roc agus avant garde. Nar cuideachd airson an tachartais shònraichte seo, bidh buidheann tàlantach de luchd-ciùil air aoigheachd.

‘S e seinneadair, trusaiche beul-aithris agus seanchaidh fìor chliùiteach a th’ ann am Mairead Bennett.

Tha Màrtainn Green air duaisean a chosnadh mar cheòladair agus mar sgrìobhaiche-ciùil. Tha e aithnichte gu h-àraid mar bhall den chòmhlan Lau, a choisinn cliù gu nàiseanta agus eadar-nàiseanta.

Tha Ruairidh Gray à Uibhist a Deas a’ cosnadh cliù agus a’ tighinn am bàrr mar sheinneadair agus mar neach-ciùil.

Tha Brian Hartley na neach-ealain bhidio eadar-obrachail agus na fhilmeadair.
