Julie Fowlis: Music of the Scottish Isles

Description: Julie Fowlis is a multi-award winning Gaelic singer who is deeply influenced by her early upbringing in the Outer Hebridean island of North Uist. Her crystalline and intoxicating vocals have enchanted audiences around the world. An artist with a genuine curiosity to explore other traditions and natural ability to cross genres, Julie has collaborated, recorded and performed with artists such as violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti and acclaimed singers Aled Jones, Grammy Award-winning James Taylor and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Julie Fowlis is no stranger to awards and distinctions, winning Gaelic Singer of the Year and Album of the Year (on two occasions) at the Scots Trad Music Awards, plus several other major accolades including Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. She will forever be recognized for singing the theme song to “Brave,” Disney Pixar’s Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA winning animated film, set in the ancient highlands of Scotland. The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series
