Caarjyn Cooidjagh

Caarjyn Cooidjagh is a group of singers based in the Isle of Man. Performing a selection of traditional and contemporary Manx songs, they usually sing arrangements in Manx Gaelic by the group’s director, Annie Kissack. The eight women and six men who make up the group come from various musical backgrounds, and, although they differ in their formal training, they share an enthusiasm for Manx culture and good music performed simply. Their busy yearly schedule usually includes ceilis, church services, music festivals and community events.

Here they are in action at the Cooish Inter-Gaelic Festival http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hCdDmpJcvs

Caarjyn Cooidjagh means ‘friends together’ in Manx Gaelic.
