Kathleen's Tips

Kathleen MacInnes - Gaelic Singer

I’m Kathleen, I’m a Gaelic singer. I am very fortunate with my work in music that I spend a lot of time travelling all over Scotland, particularly in the Highlands and Islands. I will never tire of the stunning scenery I pass on my way to and from gigs! I love my work and feel blessed and very proud to be Scottish as it is such a beautiful country. I have the best of both worlds as I spend a lot of time on Scottish islands with work and I live in one of Scotland's largest cities so I enjoy city life in Glasgow with its parks and gardens, it's truly great galleries and museums, and its great food.
