In 1983 at the National Mod in Motherwell Arthur Cormack, from the Isle of Skye, won the Gold Medal, the premier award for Gaelic singing. At 18 years of age he was one of the youngest ever to win this medal. This record demonstrates the fact that the Gaelic tradition is alive and flourishing in the hands of a young performer who not only loves and respects the songs, old and new, but also stamps his own character and enthusiasm on them.
