Julie Fowlis first Irish date of 2014 - 7th June, Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin, Derry

Leading light of the Scottish folk scene Julie Fowlis will play her first Irish date of 2014 in Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin, Derry on Saturday 7th June.

Following the success of her critically-acclaimed new album Gach Sgeul ~ Every Story, the Scottish Gaelic singer will be touring throughout the UK in May, and will also perform her first ever headline gig in Derry as part of the Colm Cille Summer School.

As a strong advocate for her native language, the singer earned notoriety for her unusual Gaelic reworking of The Beatles’ iconic ‘Blackbird’, or ‘Lon-dubh’.

Her music has earned her much sought-after coverage on BBC Radio 2’s Terry Wogan show as well as a key slot on Later… with Jools Holland.

Brought up on North Uist in Outer Hebridies, Julie Fowlis has been a proud standard bearer of Gaelic music and culture over the course of a solo career which has spanned over ten years and three highly successful albums.

In 2012 she lent her vocals to the soundtrack of Disney Pixar’s Oscar-winning movie Brave, has shared the stage with an endless list of musical stars, and toured the UK and North America with the Transatlantic Sessions.

Gach Sgeul boasts an all-star line up of guest musicians including Karen Matheson and Michael McGoldrick (Capercaillie) and her husband Eamon Doorley (Danú).

Tickets are now on sale for the gig at www.culturlann-doire.ie and through the venue box office on +44 (0)28 7126 4132. The full programme for Scoil Samhraidh Cholm Cille will be announced in the coming weeks.
