Accompanied by her band, Siobhan Miller will play shows from Worcestershire to Orkney, taking in gigs in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and many more.
Siobhan’s headline tour follows her 14,000-capacity run as a featured vocalist in Transatlantic Sessions, where she dueted with Irish legend, Paul Brady, and multiple Grammy-winner, Sarah Jarosz – backed by the all-star house band, under the musical directorship of Jerry Douglas and Aly Bain.
A richly celebrated Scottish folk singer and songwriter in her own right, Siobhan Miller’s soulful and stirring renewal of traditional song has won her the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, and the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards’ Scots Singer of the Year an unprecedented four times.
Siobhan’s fourth solo album, All is Not Forgotten, was released to critical acclaim in 2020, achieving radio play and interviews on BBC Radio 2, 3 and 4 during the height of the first national lockdown – with no accompanying touring. A return to her acoustic roots, and combining her love of traditional songs with original material, the album develops many of the themes and ideas from previous releases Mercury (2018), Strata (2017) and Flight of Time (2015).
Alongside her extensive solo touring throughout Europe, Australia, the USA and Canada, Siobhan has collaborated with many of Scotland’s top musicians, including Eddi Reader, with whom she has toured widely and formed a close musical bond – supporting, singing alongside and making guest appearances on each other’s albums. She has also worked with the National Theatre of Scotland, spent a season on Broadway, and has featured on US/UK TV drama, Outlander.
Whilst also taking in festival appearances at the Orkney Folk Festival, Perth Festival of the Arts, and Skye Live, Siobhan’s May tour will return to a number of cities that she has performed with large ensembles, such as Transatlantic Sessions – but now treating audiences to two full sets of material spanning her solo career.
“I’m thrilled to be heading back out to visit some of my favourite places and venues with the band. With all of the uncertainty of the last couple years it’s made me realise the importance of live music, being in the same room as an audience and making that connection. Thinking about that has really inspired some of the new music we’ll be playing from my forthcoming album. It’s all about getting back to that feeling of live performance and having fun playing music to a room full of people. We’re really eager for people to have a great night at the show and make those connections again.”
Siobhan will perform at Greystones in Sheffield on May 8th 2022.
