Two-time winner of Scots Singer of the Year, 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 the most vast concert halls to the bar sessions afterwards.
Her debut solo album, Flight of Time – produced by James Grant and nominated for album of the year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2015 – marks an exciting new chapter in a sparkling career that stretches back to her early teens. A recipient of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, alongside Jeana Leslie – with whom she went on to release two acclaimed albums and tour internationally, Siobhan is also a former member of folk group Salt House, whose album was heralded as “seamless” by The Guardian.
Her style has been honed through collaborations and studies with many of Scotland’s top musicians. She is part of the all-star cast and a featured solo singer within Far Far from Ypres, directed by Ian MacCalman, has performed on Broadway, New York, and in 2014 was a guest singer with National Theatre of Scotland in their Alternative Burns production.
Nationwide television appearances, performances for royalty and heads of state, and outings at many of the UK’s major folk festivals – including Cambridge, Cropredy, Towersey, Underneath the Stars, Orkney, Shetland, and The Great British Folk Festival – illustrate just why she has been lauded as “the finest young interpreter of Scots traditional song” (Scotland on Sunday).
‘One of the best Scottish traditional singers on the planet’
‘assured and precise… Siobhan Miller’s vocals are bright and unforced.’
‘One of the finest young voices on the Scottish folk scene’
‘a writing talent that’s as impressive as her velvet voice’
‘one of the most exciting new traditional singers in Scotland.’
