We were up at Stonehaven Folk Club (www.stonehavenfolkclub.co.uk) celebrating their 30th anniversary and presenting them with a Hands Up for Trad Landmark Award (www.landmark.scot). The club started in 1987. Whilst there we asked singer Siobhan Miller a few questions about her new album Strada (www.siobhanmiller.com)
After Siobhan’s interview you can hear a snippet of a song from The Speirs Family who were also folk club guests that night
