Abby & Ella Hanson

Gaelic Language

Abby and Ella/Eilidh Hanson are two young Gaels with a passion for sharing their heritage. They have been involved for several years with the Gaelic community in the Halifax region as well as in and around St. Ann’s, Cape Breton. Both play fiddle, piano, and continue in working toward full fluency in the Gaelic language. Abby also loves singing in Gaelic and Ella enjoys step dancing. They have performed on stages big and small, including graduation ceremonies, weddings, church services, festivals, ceilidhs, and pubs. They spent years travelling to the Gaelic College to take part in Na Gaisgich Òga, a Gaelic mentorship program for youth. Part of the mission of Na Gaisgich Òga is for participants to demonstrate a commitment to Gaelic language and culture in Nova Scotia and they are determined to do their best.
