“Scots Trad Music Awards and London 2015”

We are delighted to announce that Julie and the fantastic musicians she tours with have been named as Folk Act of the Year 2014 at the Scots Trad Music Awards! This comes only days after Julie made history as the first Gaelic solo artist to receive a Scottish Music Award.

In her acceptance speech, on behalf of herself and her husband Éamon Doorley, Julie thanked the first class musicians who make up her live touring band, particularly Tony Byrne, Duncan Chisholm and Ewen Vernal, with a special mention to their live sound engineer Alan 'Dinner' MacKinnon.

Looking ahead to 2015, we are excited to reveal Julie's first concert of 2015 - in the stunning Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, London. The show is part of the Concerts by Candlelight series and will take place on May 22nd.  It promises to be a special evening, so get in quick to get the best seats! You can book tickets here:

About this latest award, Julie said, "I would like to thank Simon Thoumire and Hands Up for Trad for the beautiful award, all the team who work behind the scenes for us, all those who have come to support the shows in 2014 but especially all the musicians who I am lucky enough to tour and create music with. It's a privilege and a joy. Thank you."
