Gu Smior

Nova Scotia

Gu Smior is a dynamic new musical duo comprised of Gaelic speakers Hannah Krebs and Lewis MacKinnon. Performing Gaelic songs, tunes and dance, Gu Smior provides a unique approach to sharing Nova Scotia’s Gaelic language and culture as Hannah, who also plays concertina, and Lewis, a past Celtic Colours Artist in Residence, interact on stage through the medium of Gaelic. Knowledgeable, informed and lively, Gu Smior, which translates from Gaelic to English as “to the marrow”, takes a new approach to a genre that is rich in song and music. With great musicality, complementary unison choruses and genuine energy and passion, Gu Smior makes any musical event a true language-based cultural experience, audience-friendly and memorable. Before making their Celtic Colours debut, Gu Smior performed at the Halifax Celtic Festival and Kitchenfest.
