Tonight’s singers all hail from the Isle of Skye – the original stamping ground of Runrig, and where they formed in the 70s.
Deirdre Graham grew up in a musical family on the Isle of Skye, steeped in Gaelic culture from an early age. She went on to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland before moving to China and Malaysia, where she embraced the local music and traditions. Since returning home Deirdre has been active in promoting Gaelic music.
Eilidh Cormack won the Ladies’ Gold Medal at the Royal National Mòd on her first attempt at the age of 18 and was hailed Gaelic Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards in 2018. Hailing from a family of well-known singers, she has been performing from an early age, both in concerts and at festivals such as Celtic Connections, Ligonier Highland Games in the US and Belladrum's Tartan Heart Festival.
They will be accompanied by the hugely talented and award-winning multi-instrumentalist Innes Watson, now based on Skye.
