Wednesday 8 December 2021, Marryat Hall, 1pm
Josie Duncan is a young folk singer from the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis. Having been immersed in Glasgow's fast-moving traditional music scene for the past few years where she studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Josie's crystal clear voice is equally at home in Gaelic, Scots or English. Josie is also the singer in 'Inyal', an innovative band combining intricate traditional instrumentation and Gaelic song with subtle electronic loops and beats. -Her approach to song offers many nods to the traditional but always feels modern, with a voice that is somehow delicately soft and yet rich and powerful at the same time. Josie has toured extensively over the past year performing at venues and festivals across Europe, Scandinavia, Canada and America.
"Effortlessly pure, supple vocals. It felt like a fresh breeze." - The Scotsman.
Owen Sinclair is a multi-instrumentalist within the Glasgow trad scene, Owen has made his mark as an international performer and teacher. Performing regularly with Tannara, Westward, the Light and Inyal, as well as staple tutor at the renowned Glasgow Fiddle Workshop. He also performs as part of the Bell Rock Ceilidh Band.
