March

Josie Duncan & Pablo Lafuente

Friday 29 March 2019

Josie Duncan is a young folk singer from the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis. Having been immersed in Glasgow's fast moving traditional music scene for the past few years where she studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Josie's crystal clear voice is equally at home in Gaelic, Scots or English. This year Josie was awarded BBC Radio 2's Young Folk Award alongside guitarist Pablo Lafuente. The duo are released their debut album at this year's Celtic Connections festival. Josie is also the singer in 'Inyal', an innovative band combining intricate traditional instrumentation and Gaelic song with subtle electronic loops and beats.

With self-penned and traditional songs, she also performs as a soloist, self-accompanying on the clarsach (celtic harp). Her approach to song offers many nods to the traditional but always feels modern, with a voice which is somehow delicately soft and yet rich and powerful at the same time. Josie has toured extensively over the past year performing at venues and festivals across Europe, Scandinavia, Canada and America.

"Effortlessly pure, supple vocals. It felt like a fresh breeze." - The Scotsman.
