THE SIOBHAN MILLER BAND Introducing one of Scotland’s finest singers and her band: https://www.siobhanmiller.com/

The only ever three-time winner of Scots Singer of the Year (2017, 2013, 2011), Siobhan Miller is widely regarded as one of the foremost vocalists in Scotland. Her soulful and stirring renewal of traditional song effortlessly stills and silences all spaces, from vast concert halls to the bar sessions afterwards.

Following her Scots Trad Music Awards nominated debut album, “Flight of Time”, her hotly-anticipated follow-up, “Strata” was released in February 2017 to wide critical acclaim. Siobhan’s award-winning style has been honed through collaborations and studies with many of Scotland’s top musicians. In 2008, early on in her music career, she won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, alongside Jeana Leslie – Siobhan is also a former member of Folk group Salt House.

As a solo performer, she has taken Scottish music all over the World and recently completed a tour of the U.S. Nationwide television appearances, performances for royalty and heads of state, appearances on the US/UK TV drama Outlander, and outings at many of the UK’s major Folk festivals (including Wickham 2019), illustrate just why she has been lauded as “the finest young interpreter of Scots traditional song” (Scotland on Sunday).

Siobhan will be performing old songs and brand new songs from her latest album “Mercury” with her band consisting of Euan Burton (double bass), Innes White (guitar), John Lowrie (keys) and Louis Abbot (drums).

+ Lyre (Joe Boon & Bryony) Joe lived in Grayshott before going to The Royal College of Music where he gained a Music Degree in 2019. He is now pursuing a career as a professional musician. Both Joe (Guitar/Piano/Vocals) and Bryony (Guitar/Vocals) have played for us before and last time they went under the name of People. They have re-launched themselves as Lyre and are about to release their debut EP
