IS THE CLUB'S SPECIAL GUEST FOR 2019!


                                                                               

Isla St Clair is known to millions for her numerous television appearances including The Royal Variety Show, The Morecambe and Wise Show, and most
notably as co-host with Larry Grayson on the BBC's long running The Generation Game which won her `Best Female TV Personality'. Her television series
The Song and the Story won the coveted European award `Prix Jeunesse'.  Born in Scotland Isla is one of Britain’s foremost traditional singers, noted for  the depth of feeling she brings to her country’s music. At twelve she recorded the first of many traditional ballads for the School of Scottish Studies, and which are still used as reference works. Still in her teens Isla was soon in the top rank of British folksingers, winning several awards including `Best Female Folk Singer', and touring the world.  Recently she received an honorary degree as Master of the University of Aberdeen for her contribution to traditional music. Isla takes a keen interest in teaching children the importance of traditional music and performs her specially prepared programme for educational establishments at home and abroad.  Isla’s talent has also matured to encompass other aspects of the entertainment business and she continues to be busy with, television, radio, stage, presenting and touring in her live shows.

I think this short biography tells you a lot but as well as visiting her own modest website I strongly recommend that you visit her Wikipedia page as well.

If you only know Isla through her television work then I strongly suggest listening to her on You Tube. I had some problems loading some of her songs but I am fairly confident that this link to her singing "Farewell To Tarwathie" will work:
