Na Seudan is an all-girl Gaelic and Traditional folk group from Tarbert, Loch Fyne.  The group have a unique contemporary sound and are in the middle of adding the final touches to their 15 song long album which should be ready for everyone to enjoy in the next month or so. The only thing we need is a bit more help to get to our target! Na Seudan is full of talent, with harmony singing, piano, fiddle, cello, double bass, flutes, accordion & Cajon . Their music is influenced by both jazz & folk traditions and they have the support of volunteer tutors who give their time freely, providing and helping with interesting arrangements of traditional music. Susan Rhodes does all the arranging, coaches the girl’s music putting in many hours to ensure the quality of their performance reaches a really high standard. Dr Neil MacDonald coaches the Gaelic and Scots words at every rehearsal as well as additional vocal coaching time. The Argyllshire Advertiser and Oban Times locally have been very good at covering the girl’s activities so you may have noticed them in the papers over the past few years. Aged between 14-18 years the girls have had considerable success, gold medal winners of the National Mod 2012 under 19s folk section very narrowly missing out on gold in 2013 to the Glasgow Gaelic unit. They appeared on BBC Alba at Hogmanay 2012. Other notable performances include the Danny Kyle Open stage in Glasgow concert hall at Celtic connections last January, the Ross Theatre in Princes St during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Dalriada connections at the Mull of Kintyre music festival 2012 and 2013. As well as Taynuilt ceilidh last year in March. The girls are also winners of a number of local Mod & music festival competitions and perform regularly for local groups in the area, such as carers groups & senior citizens events. They have also organised fundraising concerts for a number of charities such as RNLI, Marys Meals, Tarbert Academy school fund & Tarbert Senior Citizens annual dinner. We hope you could help out with a pledge to complete the fund raising we have undertaken to date. We’ve set our target at 750, but with the huge cost of CD productions any donations are hugely appreciated, and with pledges starting at £6 you would be helping us produced something we can be proud of and something for everyone to enjoy. £10 doesn’t sound much for a completed CD (this price does not include postage and packaging price)  but we’ve been working towards this for a good while and are just short of the final amount of cash to complete the project. Have a read through our pledges and know that your contribution will have allowed a very unique sound to come to life. Thank you in advance for your help! Na Seudan    

Risks and challenges

We’re well down the path to completion and are just awaiting the design work back, mixing; mastering then processing the product should be completed soon so it’s just to pay for some of the final production costs.
