Tell us about your band
Eddie and Ellie came together in 2018 at a teaching project with Barluath and Simon Thoumire in Braemar, a small village in Aberdeenshire, where Ellie is from. Following this, they have been practising and having tunes together. Accompanied by Calum Morrison on guitar, a good friend of Eddie’s.
Who are the band members
Eddie Seaman – pipes/whistle
Ellie McLaren – fiddle
Calum Morrison – guitar
What are you hopes and aspirations for the band?
This is our first proper achievement as a band, but are yet to make plans for the band’s future. We have prospects of gigs coming up however.
Battle of The Folk Bands is a Hands Up for Trad project. Read about the organisation and join our weekly Scottish music information email here.
