A richly celebrated Scottish folk singer and songwriter, Siobhan Miller’s soulful and stirring renewal of traditional song has won her a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, and the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards’ Scots Singer of the Year an unprecedented four times.
Siobhan’s fourth solo album, All is Not Forgotten was released to critical acclaim in 2020, achieving radio play on BBC Radio 2, 3 and 4. A return to her acoustic roots, and combining her love of traditional songs with original material, the album develops many of the themes and ideas from previous releases Mercury (2018), Strata (2017) and Flight of Time (2015). All four records were nominated for BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards’ Album of the Year. Her fifth record is released in spring 2022, following a nationwide tour with the star-studded Transatlantic Sessions, and she appears with her 6-piece band at Perth Festival.
Siobhan has been a regular performer at the city’s Celtic Connections festival, where she was Artistic Director for the 2016 Opening Concert – and returns as part of the star-studded Transatlantic Sessions line-up in 2022.
Alongside her extensive solo ventures, Siobhan’s unique vocal style has been honed through collaborations with many of Scotland’s top musicians – including Eddi Reader, with whom she has toured widely and formed a close musical bond, supporting and singing alongside, and making guest appearances on each other’s albums.
