On behalf of the Local Organising Group, I’d like to welcome you to Mòd Phàislig 2023.
The Mòd was previously held here in 2013 and we’re delighted to welcome Gaelic’s premier Festival back to the town.
The Mòd is a mixture of competitions, concerts, ceilidhs and other events. In addition to the more formal elements, there is also a lively Fringe programme.
Although Gaelic is at the heart of everything at the Mòd, all events can be enjoyed by non-Gaelic speakers and this is particularly true of the Fringe programme.
Bars around the town centre will feature live music to suit a wide range of tastes, and for the first time, there will be an official Mòd Festival Club, located in The Sneddon handily-adjacent to Gilmour Street Station.
Signature Fringe events including a concert celebrating the publication of The Francis Tolmie Collection and on a spectacular closing concert when folk-electronica powerhouse Niteworks play their only Scottish gig of the year in the newly-refurbished Paisley Town Hall.
All in all, this year’s Fringe promises to be an action-packed line-up and we look forward to seeing you there.
Angus Ferguson, Chair of Local Organising Group
