Come along and sing or listen and Kim, Mischa and friends host a night of song.
BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2017 finalist Kim Carnie is a Gaelic singer raised in Oban with strong links to Perthshire’s Glen Lyon. Currently a TV presenter on BBC ALBA’s ‘Dè a-Nis?’, a recent Gaelic tutor at the University of Glasgow, and a National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music alumna, her love for the language is held very close to her chest. However her musical interests span wider than her immediate influences, such as Iseabail T. Macdonald and the ceilidh musicians of Oban, as she is also drawn towards Americana music with a special interest in harmony and improvisation.
Kim has performed at festivals and prestigious events across the UK, including Orkney Folk Festival, Hebridean Celtic Festival, Celtic Connections and Cambridge Folk Festival. She also opened ‘Na Trads’ as a part of John Saich’s (former member of Caparcaille) MOVE project, which featured Fraser Fifield and Neil Primrose (Travis). Kim is also a current member of ‘Air Falbh Leis na h-Eòin/Away with the Birds’, a vocal piece exploring the relationship between Gaelic and bird song, which was commissioned for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
