Ar Cànan ’s ar Ceòl’ – ‘b e urram dhà-riribh a bh’ann nuair a chaidh Sandaidh ainmeachadh mar Bhàrd a Chomuinn Ghàidhealaich san Dàmhair 2019. 

‘Our language and our music’ – Sandy was deeply honoured to be named as Gaelic Crowned Bard.  The appointment was formally announced, and she was crowned as Bàrd, at the Royal National Mòd in Glasgow in October 2019. This prestigious two-year appointment adds to other earlier literary awards and prizes, which have recognised her poetry, her songwriting, and her debut collection ‘Crotal Ruadh’ – ‘Red Lichen’.  

She is now at work on a second collection. Sandy has an exciting programme of events ahead in her bardic term to October 2021. There is more information about forthcoming engagements on the ‘News and Events’ page.
