Author Biography - Anne Lorne Gillies
Dr Anne Lorne Gillies is one of the best known figures in Scottish life today. She has sung in concerts, theatres, festivals and recording studios throughout the world, and on many TV and radio series which were broadcast throughout the UK during the 1970s and 1980s, until her time was increasingly devoted to the establishment of Gaelic-medium education - as patron of the Gaelic Playgroup Association, national education officer for Comann na Gaidhlig and Gaelic lecturer at the University of Strathclyde. She now devotes a great deal of time to writing and producing multi-media Gaelic resources. For many years she was Gaelic-singing tutor at the University of Stirling Heritage of Scotland Summer Schools, passing on hundreds of songs to her students, several of whom have gone on to have distinguished singing careers of their own.
