Kenneth Thomson comes from Campbeltown, but has spent many years in Glasgow, having had an extremely successful career as a Chief Executive in the National Health Service. Since retiring early, he has become more involved in Gaelic issues.
Kenneth has been involved in Gaelic music for a great many years. He won the Mòd Gold Medal in Stornoway in 1979 but is probably best known as a conductor of choirs, in particular the Glasgow Gaelic Music Association - the GG - which he has steered for many years with considerable success, winning the Lovat & Tullibardine competition at National Mòds on a number of occasions.
He jokes that people are more acquainted with his backside than his handsome profile, but Kenneth is a very talented and popular solo singer, and a consummate musician and awarded a BEM in the 2021 Queen's Birthday Honours List.
