Siobhan Miller is set for county on tour

Rob George 30th Apr, 2022

HOT on the heels of her recent tour as a guest with the star-studded Transatlantic Sessions, multi-award winning Scottish singer-songwriter, Siobhan Miller is set to embark upon a UK tour throughout May.

Accompanied by her band, Siobhan will play shows from Worcestershire to Orkney, taking in gigs in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and many more.

The richly-celebrated folk singer will take to the stage at The Fleece Inn in Bretforton on Thursday (May 5) and at Birmingham’s Kitchen Garden Café next Monday (May 9).

Siobhan’s headline tour follows her 14,000-capacity run as a featured vocalist in Transatlantic Sessions, where she dueted with Irish legend, Paul Brady, and multiple Grammy-winner, Sarah Jarosz – backed by the all-star house band, under the musical directorship of Jerry Douglas and Aly Bain.

A richly celebrated Scottish folk singer and songwriter in her own right, Siobhan Miller’s soulful and stirring renewal of traditional song has won her the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, and the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards’ Scots Singer of the Year an unprecedented four times.

Alongside her extensive solo touring throughout Europe, Australia, the USA and Canada, Siobhan has collaborated with many of Scotland’s top musicians, including Eddi Reader, with whom she has toured widely and formed a close musical bond – supporting, singing alongside and making guest appearances on each other’s albums.

“With all of the uncertainty of the last couple years it’s made me realise the importance of live music, being in the same room as an audience and making that connection,” she said.

“Thinking about that has really inspired some of the new music we’ll be playing from my forthcoming album.

“It’s all about getting back to that feeling of live performance and having fun playing music to a room full of people.
