Julie Fowlis is a groundbreaking artist who continues to entice new audiences worldwide and push accepted musical boundaries with her adaptations of songs from her native Scottish Gaelic tradition. It is little wonder that when Disney was searching for the perfect, authentic singing voice to feature in the soundtrack to Brave, their new 3D animated blockbuster set in 10th century Scotland, their research led them to one of the country’s true contemporary treasures – Julie Fowlis.
