An Seachdamh Tonn is Sandy’s second collection of Gaelic poetry and songs, published in June 2021 by Acair, who described it as a ‘gem of a collection’. It comprises fifty new poems in a wide variety of poetic forms, and a dozen of them are set to music as new songs, and arranged by Sandy and several other composers. Join us for a sneak preview before the collection is formally launched at the Royal National Mòd in Inverness in October 2021. 

About the author: Sandy NicDhòmhnaill Jones is one of the most exciting poets writing in Scottish Gaelic today. She is also a singer, a songwriter and a harpist, whose live performances of her work have entranced audiences. With the publication of her debut collection, Red Lichen (2016), she was recognised as a poet with a strong female voice, immersed in the Gaelic tradition and drawing deeply from a common European classical heritage. She was awarded the much-coveted title of Gaelic Crowned Bard for the period 2019-2021 at the Royal National Mòd in Glasgow in 2019.
