Jeana Leslie and Siobhan Miller, with Aaron Jones
Jeana Leslie and Siobhan Miller are two talented young singers and musicians recognised as shining stars on the Scottish folk scene. They are both blessed with lovely, natural voices that blend beautifully, and their performances focus strongly on communicating through traditional, contemporary and self-penned song.
They came to prominence as winners of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2008, which was followed by both the Hancock Horizon Award and Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2009. Adding to these accolades, most recently Siobhan was named Citty Finlayson Scots Singer of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2011.
Orcadian Jeana and Siobhan, from Penicuik, outside Edinburgh, are both 2009 graduates of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where they first met and began working together, developing their shared love for song. Since coming together as a duo in 2008 and experiencing a whirlwind rise to prominence, they have performed extensively throughout the UK and Europe, including many major festivals.
Aaron Jones, master of the Irish bouzouki, has lived and worked in Scotland for over twenty-five years. He spends most of his year on the road touring throughout the world. He has recorded on countless traditional albums and continues to tour and record regularly with some of the biggest names in traditional music. His band, Old Blind Dogs, were voted Band of the Year in 2004 and 2007 at the Scots Trad Music Awards. He put on an inspiring show at Studio 55 Marin with Claire Mann last June.
