Hailing from North Uist in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, Fowlis has attracted a huge and growing fan-base for her lilting, pure voice which BBC radio states has, “beguiling appeal.” She is perhaps most widely known for her performance of two original songs, “Touch the Sky” and “Into the Open Air” for the Academy Award-winning Disney Pixar film “Brave.”

A multi-instrumentalist who grew up singing, piping and dancing since she was a child, Fowlis has become one of the hippest singer-songwriters around and is a proud standard bearer for Gaelic music and culture. She will be joined on stage by a three-piece band featuring fiddle, guitar, bouzouki and flutes.
