Dìleab Uilleim will feature Gaelic singers performing songs from the extensive collection of the late Rev William Matheson, narrated by renowned broadcaster and Gaelic song expert, Jo MacDonald.

William Matheson was a contemporary of Sorley MacLean, Kitty MacLeod, and James Carmichael Watson at the University of Edinburgh. He served as minister in Tobermory before becoming a senior lecturer at the University of Edinburgh and later Reader in Celtic.

He embarked on a long-term project of recording the great collection of songs he had been amassing since his student days. This remains in the archives of the School of Scottish Studies, with a fair number of his songs more readily available through the marvellous online resource, Tobar an Dualchais.

Dozens of Gaelic singers credit William Matheson with adding to their repertoire and Dìleab Uilleim will bring to life many of the songs from his archive still sung today.
