Arthur Cormack

Arthur Cormack is one of the finest Gaelic singers of his generation. In 1983 he won the Gold medal at the National Mod - the premier award for Gaelic singing. At 18 years of age he was one of the youngest ever to win this award.

He has since has sung world-wide with fellow Skye musician and former Cliar member Blair Douglas and with the highly-acclaimed Gaelic super-group MacTalla, which featured some of the most outstanding Gaelic singers with Eilidh MacKenzie and Christine Primrose, and some of the finest musicians working in their fields with Alison Kinnaird (harp and cello) and Blair Douglas (accordian and piano).

Arthur runs the Macmeanmna record label, and is known as the busiest man in Skye, also running the youth tuition festivals organisation, Feisean nan Gaidheal and The Aros Experience, a tourist centre, theatre and restaurant in Portree.

Arthur has recorded two solo albums for Temple Records: 'Nuair Bha Mi Og' (Temple Records COMD2016) was his highly acclaimed debut album and 'Ruith Na Gaoith' (Temple Records COMD2032) was the much anticipated follow up. Arthur also sings on Mactalla's 'Mairidh Gaol Is Ceol' (Temple Records COMD2054).
