“Aon Teanga – ‘One Tongue’ is a bold, new, and unequivocally unique project, reuniting the song traditions of the Gaelic nations: Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man.
The age-old links of the Gaelic language in Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man are forged anew in Aon Teanga – Un Çhengey , a bold new project reuniting the song traditions of the Gaelic nations. “
“Aon teanga – Un çhengey recognises the fundamental place of the Isle of Man in Gaeldom’s cultural triskelion, the classic Celtic triple-spiral. And with the recent burgeoning renaissance of traditional music on the island, Manx song is finding its place both at home and within her wider Gaelic family. What better time for the three song traditions to find their single voice again”
The Band members:-
From Scotland, Mary Ann Kennedy, the highly respected musician, singer, writer, producer and broadcaster
Ruth Keggin, leading young singer of the current Manx Gaelic revival, and
Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin, a traditional singer and musician from a strong singing family in Connemara in the West of Ireland.
Together they have created a Gaelic song-world that delves into traditional roots while boldly asserting the place of the Gaelic languages and culture in a contemporary world.
Aon Teanga:Un Çhengey – whichever way you spell it, sounds the same, means the same – ‘One Tongue’. Three superbly expressive voices from the three Gaelic nations as one voice, reuniting the Scottish, Irish and Manx Gaels. Aon Teanga:Un Çhengey (say it the way it looks in Manx) celebrates the linguistic, musical and cultural connections of Gaelic as one language between the sister-nations for the first time in centuries

Aon teanga – Un çhengey is supported by the PRS Foundation’s Beyond Borders fund, one of the flagship programmes of the new music commissioning organisation. It is unique in its interpretation of the ‘Borders’ implied, but a perfect fit for the aspirations of the fund. The Isle of Man Arts Council have also pledged support for the project as part of their Island of Culture celebrations.
