Hands Up for Trad Music Club is back for September with two amazing concerts. At the last minute we have had to replace Kinnaris Quintet due to members of the band having to self-isolate but we are very excited to have a fabulous replacement in Heisk.
Siobhan Miller Band will perform at 8pm on Friday 25th September and Heisk will perform on 26th September (8pm). You can buy tickets for the events individually or get a discounted ticket for both concerts. Each ticket is 1 per household.

Siobhan Miller is a Scottish folk singer and songwriter. Her soulful and stirring renewal of traditional song has won her the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, and MG ALBA Scots Singer of the Year an unprecedented three times. This year she releases her fourth solo album despite only having started her solo career five years ago. It that time she has gained a huge following and in 2019 alone she received one million plays on streaming service Spotify. Her first three releases were all nominated for BBC Alba Scots Trad Award Album of the Year and showcase her remarkable depth of talent from original contemporary material to traditional Scottish folk songs.
Vibrant six-piece HEISK are a powerful new force on the folk scene. Their relentlessly energetic music stems from their roots in Scottish traditional music and combines it with punchy riffs and grooves.
