“A sublime and impassioned singer...”
        —Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 / BBC 6Music

Exuding all the romance, beauty, and sorrow of Gaelic music and culture, Julie Fowlis is a groundbreaking artist, enticing new audiences worldwide with adaptations of songs from her native Scottish tradition. This stylish, exuberant show, filled with endless Scottish narratives and musical energy, is one for the entire community. Celebrate the unique textures and rhythms of this evocative music, whether you know Gaelic or not. You’ll be sure to find yourself stomping your feet and clapping your hands during this performance.

Julie Fowlis is backed by a subtle acoustic trio: her husband, Eamon Doorley, playing bouzouki guitar; Tony Burne on guitar; and thoughtful fiddle work from Duncan Chisholm. Fowlis herself adds whistle and harmonium.

Widely popularized as the featured singer on the soundtrack to Pixar’s Brave, Julie is truly one of Scotland’s contemporary treasures.
