Whistles for full-time student

Recipient: Doona Lambden

Full-time music student at Leeds, Doona Lambden, received a grant towards the purchase of whistles. Doona is a talented instrumentalist, Manx speaker and singer, who has performed with Tree Cassyn and Club Kiaull.

Doona writes: 'Since receiving my grant for two new whistles from Culture Vannin I have started a trad group in Leeds where I am currently studying and performed at Festival Interceltique de Lorient with Tree Cassyn. As a student I was unable to fund this myself and am very grateful for the help given to me by Culture Vannin.'
