‘Gifted with a beautiful voice, warm, rich, flexible and distinctive. Couple this with a true love and respect for her material and the ability to engage an audience anywhere from a care home to a Prom concert hall you have a very special singer indeed.’ (Sheena Wellington)
Since winning the BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of the Year title, Robyn has performed live on BBC television, as part of the Commonwealth Games and to an audience of 8,000 at last year’s Proms in the Park with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
Performing the traditional songs of her Scottish and Irish heritage, in the Scots, English and Gaelic language, she is described as having one of the finest voices in Scottish music, with a uniquely pure tone, wonderful control and an empathy and sensitivity for traditional songs and took great pride last year in becoming an Ambassador of the Scots Language.
She was awarded Person of the Year at this year’s Dumfries and Galloway Life Awards and was nominated for Scots Singer of the Year at the Trad Music Awards.
‘Great voice and presentation and deserving of every success coming your way’ (Robbie Shepherd)
