Choir Members - Nairn Gaelic Choir

Nairn Gaelic Choir was started in November 1991 after the National Mod, which had just taken place in Dingwall, Easter Ross. There had been quite a strong Mod representation from Nairn in previous years, with the Nairn Junior Choir providing entrants to the solo, duet and choral competitions at the National and also at Provincial Mods. The junior choir's conductor, Nina MacKellar, a Mod competitor for many years, had just been runner-up in the Ladies' Gold Medal Competition in Dingwall.

As the Mod was so near at hand that year, there was a lot of interest locally, and people started to talk about extending Nairn's contribution to the Gaelic community. An advertisement was placed in the local paper for any interested parties to come to a meeting to discuss the feasibility of forming an adult choir, and the NGC was born! By October 1992 the choir were ready to compete at their first Mod - Oban, the Mod's birthplace.
