Ella Munro

Ella Munro is a young folk singer hailing from the Isle of Skye, on the west coast of Scotland. After studying for five years at the prestigious national centre of excellence in traditional music in Plockton she then went on to gain a place studying scots song at the Royal conservatoire of Scotland under the outstanding tutoring of Fiona Hunter and Rod Paterson.

During her time in Glasgow she has performed supporting well known acts such as the Paul McKenna Band, Archie Fisher, Blue Rose Code and many more. Ella has also performed at many high profile venues such as Eden Court, Edinburgh folk club, the Star folk club and others. She also frequently performs at local folk clubs in Glasgow and further afield and is indeed becoming a regular on the folk club circuit with performances at The Wee Folk Club, the Sutherland Sessions, Leith Folk Club, Stonehaven Folk Club and others. Ella’s passion for both traditional and contemporary music can be seen in her varied repertoire of scots songs by the likes of Dick Gaughan and Angus MacNaughton (to name but a few) to her self-penned songs, rapidly gaining awareness in the folk scene.

Auld Hat - New Heids at the Faw Kirk

A licensed bar will be available in the Trinity Church Hall from 6.45pm

An introduction to tonight's special event from Fraser Bruce:

"In early 2016 our show/band/showband, "Auld Hat - New Heids" was but a twinkle in its daddy's eye. Many people were mourning the passing of the 'fun' days of the Scottish Folk Scene of the 1960's/70's, when practically every town of any size had a thriving folk club packed with people laughing, having fun and singing along to the chorus songs popular at the time.

Personally, I love nothing better than sitting in a crowd, singing their hearts out. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to try and recreate those days but in theatre/ festival venues and involving top quality musicians familiar and equal to the high standard of younger musicians currently on the 'scene'.

Our show brings back many of the old favourites.

Songs, not forgotten but these days rarely aired are delivered with the cheeky but passionate ways of my little brother and me (Fraser & Ian Bruce).

Our virtuosos  Pete Clark (fiddle) and Gregor Lowrey (accordion) are simply stunning instrumentalists......and singers!!!

And all this to a slideshow backdrop of some of the characters dead and alive who drove the Scottish Folk scene in the second half of the twentieth century.

So. One year on, February 2017, we have already played many of the major Scottish theatres. Return visits are already in the diary and following a particularly successful Celtic Connections concert on 29th January 2017, many more prestigious venues have been in touch.

We're ecstatic at the response. Thank you everyone."​
