ANGUS MCPHEE - Weaver of Grass

ANGUS MCPHEE or MACPHEE was a crofter from Uist who spent almost 50 years in a Highland psychiatric hospital. During this time he chose not to speak - instead he wove a series of incredible costumes out of grass. These he hung on trees in the hospital grounds.

This blog follows the progress of HORSE + BAMBOO THEATRE as they develop and tour a show about Angus....

The last piece of the jigsaw

Helen sent me a message late yesterday: 'Gaelic Board have said YES. Great news to end the wk!' Meaning that Bòrd na Gàidhlig have agreed to funding the Angus tour. It was the last piece of the funding jigsaw, and without the support of BnG Creative Scotland's grant would have had to have been re-negotiated. This part of the support will go directly to funding a Gaelic musician and the spoken Gaelic sections - as well as bilingual material for publicity and marketing.
