Fun Folk is a fun new Gaelic music app that is designed to make it easier to introduce young children to traditional Gaelic music, dance, song and folklore of all kinds.

Developed by youth arts organization Feis Rois, this Gaelic music and culture app will be available for free download on different mobile platforms including iOS and Android. It will be launched June 1 at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in the city of Edmonton.

Many people have complained that the advent of smartphones and apps risk making children too obsessed with technology at the cost of staying in touch with their cultural heritage. This is where Fun Folk comes in. The app makes Gaelic music and folklore available to children on modern technological platforms that they will rely on for the rest of their lives.
