AWARD WINNING SCOTTISH SINGER
Winner of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and MG Alba Scots Trad Music Award for Gaelic Singer of the Year, Mischa Macpherson is ’one of the most exciting and fully rounded talents to emerge from the Scottish scene in many a year’ (Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2). Having grown up immersed in the distinctive culture of the Outer Hebrides, she unearthed her love for music and Gaelic at a very early age, and it is these influences that the young singer now presents with clarity and tenderness to audiences around the world. She has toured and performed across Europe, Australia and Canada and performed in front of crowds as large as 20,000 people (Fairport’s Cropredy Convention).
Her music soared to the forefront of the UK’s wider musical audience after live sessions on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3, and she has since made several TV performances, most recently with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Highly regarded as a collaborator and composer, Macpherson picked up a nomination for ‘Composer of the Year’ at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2019 and has performed and worked alongside internationally acclaimed artists such as Carlos Núñez Muñoz (Galicia); Capercaillie(Scotland); Suraj and Chand Khan (Lahore, Pakistan); The Unusual Suspects of Celtic Colours (Canada) and Martyn Bennett’s GRIT Orchestra.
