    The Clarsach Society AGM 2021

    All members of The Clarsach Society are warmly invited to our 2021 Annual General Meeting, which will take place on Saturday 13th November, 11:00-12:00, online via Zoom. 

    Full details – including how to register and how to nominate office bearers – will be issued shortly.

    There’s still time to get your applications in for this year’s Mòd, taking place online and in Inverness, 8th-16th October 2021.

    If competitions aren’t for you, but you’d still like to take part in the world’s greatest celebration of Gaelic culture, have a look at our two open performance classes: C6 Introductory (for less experienced junior players) and IC2 (open to all adult players).

    The deadline for applications via An Comunn Gàidhealach’s online portal is Friday 30th July 2021.
