We asked Beth Malcolm a few questions.
Tell Us About Yourself
Perth native Beth Malcolm is a folk-inspired singer/songwriter and keys player. Beth’s music is stripped back, distinctly Scottish, and rooted in a sense of place. She has frequently performed at the Glasgow Star; appeared at Orkney Folk Festival and The Carrying Stream, and won Edinburgh Folk Club’s Annual songwriting competition in 2019. In January 2020, Beth won a prestigious ‘Danny’ award at Celtic Connections. Later that year, Beth’s song Leavin’ Loch Leven was announced as a winner of Fèis Rois and NatureScot’s In Tune With Nature project. In January 2021, Beth delighted audiences with her music as part of the virtual Celtic Connections festival. She is set to play Perth Festival this May alongside creative partner, and Fat-Suit bandleader, Dorian Cloudsley.
What are your plans for the future?
This Spring, Beth is set to play Perth Festival, airing online in late May 2021. While working as a History teacher near Edinburgh during the day, Beth is busy with plans to release multiple singles by the end of the year, recording vocals for various Scottish artists’ projects, and gearing up for some exciting plans to tour in 2022.
Thanks to Creative Scotland for their support in making this happen.
