Dr. Tiber Falzett is a Prince Edward Island-based folklorist and Scottish Gaelic-speaking musician. He has conducted over a decade of fieldwork among Scottish Gaelic speakers in Cape Breton and the Outer Hebrides and West Highlands of Scotland. His PhD research at the University of Edinburgh’s School of Scottish Studies explores the relationship between language and music through metaphor among Scottish Gaelic speakers on Cape Breton Island. Tiber enjoys a good cèilidh and any opportunity to speak Gaelic, sing songs, tell (sometimes tall) tales and give a blast of tunes on the pipes. He especially values the power of both language and music to break down barriers and bring people together. He lives in Summerside, PEI with his wife Giulia and their dog Sofia.
