Mhairi has made a fantastic video of our images of the Isle of Harris. I’d love to put it on here or You Tube etc for our blog followers and anyone interested in the island.

We have used one of our iTunes playlists as music for the island as it perfectly matches the Tao of the images and the island. Its mainly gaelic choir material. The problem is that they are all copyrighted material.

So I am going to endeavour to get permission to use it and keep you posted.

Here is the track list. If anyone has advice on this I’d be grateful for any advice.

Karen Matheson – An Ataireachd Ard;The Choir Of The Glasgow Gaelic Musical Association – An Ubhal As Airde & Cearcall; A’ Chuain Glasgow Islay Gaelic – Choir Cum Ur N’ Aire; The Choir Of The Glasgow Gaelic Musical Association – Tuireadh Nan Treun; Capercaillie – An t-Eilean Mu Thuath Enya -How Can I Keep from Singing

Here are a couple of articles of other blogs on the subject of getting copyright permission from record companies.
