Na Seòid

...de All Media Scotland:

Na Seòid translates as 'the heroes', and the seven young band members have each won their fair share of traditional music's highest accolades. Mary Ann is one of just a handful of singers to win both Gold Medals at the Royal National Mod, along with a prestigious Saltire award at the Scots Traditional Music Awards.

Mary Ann Kennedy said: "What's special about this group is that Gaelic is part of every day life, for every single one of them, and not just a language for the stage. I think that's a powerful element, which in turn has a fundamental impact on the way they perform the music".
