The Siobhan Miller Band
The Slaughtered Lamb, Clerkenwell
Tuesday 28th February 2017
Two-time winner of Scots Singer of the Year, Siobhan Miller is widely regarded as one of the foremost vocalists in Scotland. Her soulful and stirring renewal of traditional song effortlessly stills and silences all spaces, from the most vast concert halls to the bar sessions afterwards.
Siobhan Miller releases her hotly-anticipated second solo album, Strata on February 24th, 2017. The release was previewed at a headline show at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival, ahead of a UK tour starting in The Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, on the album’s release date, and taking in dates in London, Birmingham, Stirling and Inverness, amongst many more.
Following her 2014 debut, Flight of Time, Strata consists of eleven songs, from a variety of sources, that Miller grew up listening to and performing in her youth. All newly arranged and now recorded by her for the first time, the material reflects on her musical upbringing whilst forging her own path forward. Her vocal performances sit atop the all-star talents of some of Scotland’s finest musicians, including Kris Drever and Aidan O’Rourke of Lau and Admiral Fallow frontman Louis Abbott.
Her style has been honed through collaborations and studies with many of Scotland’s top musicians. She is part of the all-star cast and a featured solo singer within Far Far from Ypres, directed by Ian MacCalman, has performed on Broadway, New York, and in 2014 was a guest singer with National Theatre of Scotland in their Alternative Burns production.
Nationwide television appearances, performances for royalty and heads of state, and outings at many of the UK’s major folk festivals – including Cambridge, Cropredy, Towersey, Underneath the Stars, Orkney, Shetland, and The Great British Folk Festival – illustrate just why she has been lauded as “the finest young interpreter of Scots traditional song” (Scotland on Sunday).
