We asked Robbie of Suas a few questions about the band.
Tell us about your band
Suas are a Glasgow based band who learned their craft in different areas of Scotland, and use these disparate influences to create uplifting music inspired by their individual places and cultures.
Glasgow’s Irish scene is very much represented in the final product, in equal measure with the Highland culture of the North West and everything in between.
Who are the band members
Sarah Markey – Flute/Vocals
Jack McRobbie – Guitar
Robbie Greig – Fiddle
(Luc McNally – Bouzouki/Vocals, but Luc can’t make this event)
What are you hopes and aspirations for the band?
We hope to play at as many festivals and gigs as possible over the coming years, and would like at some point to make an album.
