Julie Fowlis burst onto the wider music scene in 2006, when she became the first ever Scottish Gaelic singer to win a prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Award.

Since winning the Horizon Award for best newcomer, she has won the hearts of audiences around the globe, played every major festival in Britain, showcased in Texas and New York, and is in constant demand as a performer of Gaelic music.

The songs she was brought up with in the Hebrides can now be heard just as regularly on more mainstream BBC Radio and other stations throughout the world as they can be at home on Gaelic radio. This was shown in her groundbreaking nomination just 8 months later for Folk Singer of the Year 2007 at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Her natural charm, humour and animated story telling have become almost as appealing as her heart-melting vocals. Her first English tour in 2006 proved a huge success, and 2007 promises to be yet another adventure with the release of this follow-up album 'cuilidh'.

Bringing centuries-old songs from the windswept islands of the Hebrides to a modern audience, Julie remains steadfastly true to her roots in North Uist.

If you haven’t heard her before, be prepared to be surprised by her music and her breathtaking vocal power. This is true Gaelic music - come have a listen.

Julie's other awards include Gaelic Singer of the Year (Scots Trad Music Awards 2005), Best Up and Coming Artist (with Dòchas) Scots Trad Music Awards 2004, Traditional Singer of the Year Pan Celtic Nations Festival 2003 and La Trophe La Bolee de Corrigans (Festival Interceltique de Lorient 2000).
