Julie Fowlis will bring her “Music of the Scottish Isles and the “BRAVE” Soundtrack” to The Prizery Sunday at 3 p.m.
Fowlis is no stranger to awards and distinctions, winning Gaelic Singer Of The Year and Album Of The Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2007 and nominated for the third year in a row as BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year (the first ever Scottish Gaelic singer to win this prestigious award when given the title in 2008).
Her single “Blackbird’’ also was play-listed on BBC Radio 2, the first Scottish Gaelic artist to be play-listed in such a manner.
Fowlis is a passionate torchbearer for the culture of her native Western Isles. And, coupled with her extraordinary talent, it is this quiet determination to celebrate the music of the Outer Hebrides and Highlands of Scotland.
