Joined by her 5-piece band, celebrated Scottish folk singer and songwriter, Siobhan Miller makes a triumphant return to Celtic Connections. This follows her appearances amidst the all-star cast of Transatlantic Sessions in 2022, and hot on the heels of her acclaimed 5th solo album release. After 2 years without the fun, energy and community of festivals and sessions, Siobhan set about recapturing that life-affirming feeling within her next record, Bloom; an out and out, freewheeling celebration of much-loved Scottish songs that well and truly shakes off the shackles and burst out of darker times like a flower in the desert.
Gnoss’ signature sound is a rich tapestry of acoustic layers; outstanding musicianship, deep traditional roots and contemporary compositional flair combine to create songs and tunes brimming with character. Formed by the award-winning Orkney duo of fiddler/mandolinist Graham Rorie and singer-guitarist Aidan Moodie – with Connor Sinclair (flute/whistles) and Craig Baxter (bodhran/stomp) – the Glasgow-based quartet combine livewire instrumental sets with richly stirring song arrangement. Double BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards nominees, the young quartet have garnered a loyal following with their high-spirited, forward-thinking take on traditional music coupled with the unique warmth of their live shows. Still in their mid-twenties, Gnoss already have 2 back-to-back sell-out appearances at Celtic Connections – in 2019 as hosts and musical directors of Orkney Folk: The Gathering, then at their headline debut the following year.
