Song of the Sea, Tiree’s Maritime Heritage

The Song of the Sea project was a Tiree Maritime Trust project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  A group of young people worked with Jack Lockhart to research Tiree’s maritime heritage at An Iodlhann, record interviews and document events throughout the year. The young people also worked with Jamie MacDonald to write a new piece of music for the film. 

The film was an opportunity for the group to learn more about their own heritage, collect stories and learn new skills in the process.
