Intimate double bill with some of the hottest acts in Scotland!
Man of the Minch:
Over the past few years, Man Of The Minch has become one of the most exciting names at the forefront of Scottish folk music. Blending traditional Celtic sounds with synth-pop and personal, profound storytelling, he has already picked up his fair share of fans and followers. Winner of the Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the 2019 Scots Trad Awards, he is breathing new life into traditional music whilst staying true to what makes that music so timeless.
A well known collaborator on the folk scene, he has performed as a vocalist and fiddle player with the likes of Broken Chanter and Rachel Sermanni. He is also the founder of the groundbreaking "Bogha-frois: Queer Voices in Folk", which debuted at Celtic Connections in 2019 and was invited to return to the festival for 2020. The project brings together instrumentalists, songwriters, writers, poets and performers from across Scotland’s LGBT+ community and continues to trailblaze, with shows planned throughout 2021 and beyond.
Man of the Minch released his debut album "The Tide is at the Turning" in August, preceded in July by a Live EP of Gaelic material "Sradagan na Sraide".
"Forward thinking folk music" Rolling Stone
Adam Ross is the lead singer in Randolph’s Leap, an indie-folk collective known for their joyful live gigs and prolific output. In 2018, the Randolph’s Leap back-catalogue inspired a touring theatre show called The Isle of Love which depicted life on a Hebridean island as told through Adam’s lyrics. In his performance at Skye Bridge Sessions he will showcase a sparse and intimate collection of songs which blend tenderness, wry humour and poetic lyrics.
