A workshop of Scottish waulking songs.

Waulking was the end stage in homespun tweed production. A group of women and girls would rhythmically beat the cloth on a hard table, to shrink and soften it. Waulking songs would be sung throughout the process – with one woman singing the verses and the others joining in the choruses.

Joy Dunlop, Mod gold medalist and multi-prize winning Gaelic singer, leads this interactive workshop.
