LARGS Gaelic Choir proved pitch perfect as they scooped a double win at the prestigious Oban Provincial Mod.

The group made sure their voices were heard at the recent competition as conductor and tutor Eilidh Johnson's enthusiasm and energy led the choir to a string of victories.

The ladies choir scored the first win of the day with their rendition of two Gaelic songs, Oidhche Mhath Leibh and Eilean Arainn, a song of longing for the Isle of Arran.

Adjudicators sang their praises, describing their performance as 'buoyant' and 'gorgeous' after being wowed by the set.

The judges also recognised the stunning arrangement by Eila Handyside, who is a longtime member of the Largs Gaelic Choir as well as a talented performer with many other local musical organisations.

Further success came in the duet competition, with a stunning performance from Linda McCallum and Colin Fisher.

The pair sang a brand new arrangement of a Runrig's 'An Uathal ar Airde' , or 'The Highest Apple ', which is about the need to always strive for the best, an ethos which the pair clearly took on board.

The day in Oban concluded with a ceilidh in the Oban Bay Hotel.

The choir is now looking forward to the National Mod in Glasgow in October where they hope to repeat their successes.

Closer to home, they also enjoyed a joint performance with the Largs Community Choir at the end of June in the Green Shutters Bistro to celebrate Make Music Day.

The event was to support choir member Morag Graham, who is cutting off her hair to raise funds for North Ayrshire Cancer Care and Lupus UK.

The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings at St Columba’s Episcopal Church Hall at 7.30pm.

All welcome to pop along and enquire about joining.
