Milling Frolic with Mary Maclean & Friends

Enjoy the tradition of a milling frolic with Sgoil Ghàidhlig an Àrd-bhaile (Gaelic Language Society of Halifax) as we demonstrate the tradition of shrinking newly woven wool as it came off the loom. Gaelic songs are sung in rhythm as the cloth is pounded on the table. Today the milling frolic is performed for enjoyment as families can participate in Gaelic singing and meet Gaelic singers. Srùbag (tea and oatcakes) provided.
