Ally Forsyth

Ally Forsyth is a traditional Scottish musician based in Glasgow. In 2022 he embarked on an ambitious seasonal quartet of EPs, starting with the release of Spring and finishing with Leap Year in 2024. Ally has worked with some of Scotland's best traditional musicians including Anna Massie, Hannah Rarity, Innes Watson and Josie Duncan.


Beatha are a vibrant folk trio hailing from Glasgow. Only in their first year, this award-winning trio brings together the diverse talents of Iona Reid (keys), Kenneth Macfarlane (whistles) and Cam Lawson (bodhrán). Drawing inspiration from across the globe, Beatha infuses traditional folk melodies with a contemporary flair, resulting in a captivating musical experience.
