The 16th Spring Sing
with Siobhan Miller
on Saturday 9th February

Tutor: Siobhan Miller

Singer-songwriter Siobhan Miller is the only three-time winner of the Best Singer at the Scots Trad Music Awards (2011, 2013 and 2017); and had success earlier this year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winning Best Traditional Track.

Growing up in a musical family in Penicuik, Siobhan Miller made her singing debut at the Auchtermuchty Festival when she was 13 years old winning both the children’s and women’s competitions. Graduating from Glasgow’s RSAMD with a 1st Class Honours BA in 2009, Siobhan joined Salt House, a group with the finely matched abilities of Lauren MacColl, Ewan MacPherson and Euan Burton. Their album Lay Your Dark Low was released in 2014 heralded as “seamless” by The Guardian.

Siobhan has released 3 solo albums to widespread critical acclaim with each highlighting her extensive range through traditional, contemporary and selfpenned material, as well as her “delicate, nourishing vocals and lyrically rich compositions” (The List).

Siobhan’s unique vocal style has been honed through collaborations and studies with many of Scotland’s top musicians and Traditional bearers, leading to extensive tours fronting her own band, as well as guest appearances with the National Theatre of Scotland, a season on Broadway in New York, and on US/UK TV drama Outlander.
