Hannah will be releasing her debut Album ‘ Neath The Gloaming Star’ on 2nd September 2018 which features some of Scotland’s most sought after young musical talent, as well as folk legend, Phil Cunningham. The album features interpretations of songs from the folk genre she embraces so effortlessly, which includes Scots song from a number of sources, self-penned tracks and heart-wrenching covers of some of Scotland’s greatest songwriters, including Davy Steele’s Rose O’ Summerlee and Silly Wizard frontman Andy M. Stewart’s ‘Where Are You (Tonight, I Wonder)?’.
Since graduating from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, she has toured internationally with the renowned Irish-American traditional group ‘Cherish the Ladies’, appeared as a soloist on BBC Scotland’s Hogmanay Live 2016, sold out her 2017 Edinburgh Fringe debut and featured in projects for the RSNO, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and BBC Northern Ireland TV.
