Biography

Powerhouse harmony trio. Radio-era chic, now retro cool. Three sassy lassies. Reinventing the genre and covering all the exits

Mixing classy original songs, vibrant vintage folk and artful contemporary covers into the headiest of musical cocktails, Scottish harmony outfit The Bevvy Sisters unites the richly seasoned voices of Heather Macleod, Kaela Rowan and Roberta Pia with Shooglenifty percussionist James Mackintosh and David Donnelly (ex-Salsa Celtica/Finlay Quaye) on guitar, mandolin and backing vocals. Launched with a sellout show at Glasgow’s world-famous Celtic Connections festival, their debut album St James Sessions has won a string of glowing reviews and extensive UK radio play, while recent live highlights include headline appearances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at The Famous Spiegeltent, the Big Tent Festival, Northern Routes and the Orkney Folk Festival.

The Bevvy Sisters have in their short time together also arranged and performed Bevvy Backing Vocals with Eliza Carthy, Lau, Tim O Brien, Dick Gaughan and Dave Swarbrick

The Bevvy Sisters appear on the Folk Against Facism – Vol 1 ‘Pick of the week’ in the Sunday Times
