We are delighted to announce that Siobhan Miller, 2018’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Artist of the Year and four times winner of Scots Singer of the Year, is joining the line-up for the final event in this year’s Haddo Arts Festival – our celebration of traditional Scottish music, song and spoken word.
One of Scotland’s foremost singers, Siobhan Miller is an exceptional talent, renowned for her unique vocal style paired with her evocative song-writing. Miller creates music with detail and rich melodies that combine the sounds of indie and alternative music with sounds from her roots in folk music.
Growing up in a musical family, she was immersed in traditional song and learned from many of Scotland’s finest source singers in her early years as a performer. Her three solo albums have received widespread critical acclaim and her fourth solo album ‘Bloom’ is due for release in September 2022. Siobhan will be touring with her band in the UK following its release.
TV appearances include a role on US/UK TV drama Outlander in 2014. She was also featured on BBC Alba’s Scottish Songbook from Celtic Connections 2010, and BBC Scotland’s Hogmanay Live 2011 New Year show, webcast worldwide, when Siobhan led ‘Auld Lang Syne’ at midnight.
Siobhan joins fiddlers Raemond Jappy and Shannon Stevenson, pianist Maureen Rutherford and speaker and raconteur Jim Brown, in an evening of entertainment hosted by Scottish entertainer and singer, Dr. Robert Lovie.
