“Fowlis’s ascent to international stardom, putting Gaelic folk on the world music map, is evidence that a sublime voice transcends language and culture” ~ The Guardian
Julie Fowlis is a multi-award winning Gaelic singer who is deeply influenced by her early upbringing in the Outer Hebridean island of North Uist. With a career spanning 10 years and four studio albums, her ‘crystalline’ and ‘intoxicating’ vocals have enchanted audiences around the world.
Julie is now firmly established as a world leading artist, effortlessly able to cross genres and styles. She will forever be known as the singing voice of Merida, the female protagonist in the award-winning Disney-Pixar movie ‘Brave’.
During an impressive career with multiple awards and accolades, Julie has until now sung primarily in Scottish Gaelic. Her forthcoming album ‘alterum’ marks a change. Julie not only sings in English for the first time on one of her own albums, but also offers a beautiful Galician song ‘Camariñas’, the result of a minority-language collaborative project.
Julie is a warm and engaging live performer who has graced stages around the world, her performance at Ropetackle will be a special treat and a welcome return following her sold-out show in 2014.
