WHAT'S ON / Julie Fowlis

Lonesome Highway presents

Julie Fowlis

26 August 2017 at 7:30pm

Julie Fowlis’ exquisite voice, her interpretation of Scottish Gaelic culture and ability to bring folk music out of the past and into something contemporary, dynamic and irresistible, are what have made her a genuine and multi-award winning crossover star.

Her roots may be firmly in folk music and the Scottish Gaelic culture she grew up in, but her talent and style have brought her into the mainstream, where her unique ability to interpret the culture she is so passionate about, in a way that resonates with all who hear her sing, have won her broad new audiences.

Nominated for BBC Radio 2’s Folk Awards 2015, as 'Folk Singer of the Year', and 'Best Artist' at the Songlines world music Awards, Julie has a remarkable series of achievements to her name – including being the first solo Gaelic singer to be radio playlisted on the BBC, happily crossing genre to sing with Mary Chapin Carpenter or James Taylor, the five-time Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter; singing live to a TV audience of around 1 billion people at the Opening Ceremony of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in July 2014; collaborating with Aled Jones and virtuoso violinist Nicola Benedetti; making history by winning a Tartan Clef Scottish Music Award in 2014, and the Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards, also in 2014.
