Shiaght Laa

Thursday, 17 August 2023 - 25 minutes

In the final programme in this series, Maralyn Crellin gives an overview of musical events during the coming week, and we dip into musical treats of yesteryear with songs by Florrie Forde - the final 'Kelly' song from 1920, 'Kelly's Got Married Today' and from 1930 asks, 'What Happened to the Manx Cat's Tail?'.

As we often say in Shiaght Laa, people in the Island are active in many pursuits, and there are regular music sessions of all sorts, and the visual arts are extremely popular. This coming weekend, The Creative Network hold the final part of their biennial Isle of Man Art Festival, in which they're joined by the Manx Mural Fest.

This coming Wednesday, 23rd August, there's a return visit by Professor R Andrew MacDonald, who'll be giving a talk in the Manx Museum Lecture Theatre in Douglas in association with his new publication, 'A Visitor's Guide to the Medieval Kingdoms of Man and the Isles, 1066-1275'. Shiaght Laa heard about Professor MacDonald's work some years ago on a previous visit.
