The specially commissioned tartan consists of colours which related to the culture and diversity of Scotland. There is a base shade of blue with purple, ruby reds and splashes of orange to create a contemporary twist.
The competition takes place in Gothenburg, Sweden where the tartan will be worn by the male members of the choir. The choir of 33 will perform a Gaelic song, arranged specially by Sìleas Sinclair and will compete live against ten other countries. A full documentary following the choir’s progress can be seen on BBC Alba from 8:30PM and the live show will be airing August 3rd on BBC Alba at 7:30PM.
