I’ve just discovered Beth Malcolm’s voice recently and was absolutely blown away by her voice. Absolutely fantastic. Kathleen MacInnes, BBC Radio Scotland
Beth Malcolm has one of those distinct voices that feel like a breathe of fresh air, extremely well versed in the tradition with acclaimed vocalists in the family, Beth manages to combine this with her various contemporary music experiences (including collaborations with multi-award winning jazz outfit Fat Suit) to produce a truly unique sound. Her brand new 2023 album Kissd and Cryd is a joyful listen from start to finish and featuring some of Scotland’s finest musicians.
Beth will be performing at Braemar alongside Michael Biggins on piano (BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2021) and Callum Convoy on Bodhran (Canny Band)
