A WELL-KNOWN TV personality has come on board to boost the fundraising efforts of Linlithgow Folk Festival.
‘An Evening with Isla St Clair’ will take place in the Queen Margaret Hall at 7.30pm on Friday, April 26, when her musical talent will lighten up the stage.
Isla is more famous for her television appearances over the years, including the Royal Variety Show, the Morecambe and Wise Show, and co-hosting with Larry Grayson on the BBC’s Generation Game, for which she won “Female TV Personality of the Year”. Her television series ‘The Song and the Story’ also won the coveted European award Prix Jeunesse.
But it is Isla’s singing career that has proved most enduring. She has sung all over the world, from the Troubadour in Los Angeles to a football stadium in Moscow, since she began touring the country’s folk clubs at the age of 10.
Isla is now one of Britain’s foremost traditional singers, winning the award of “Best Female Folk Singer”, and her albums have received critical acclaim worldwide.
‘An Evening with Isla St Clair’, is a fusion of traditional and modern classics spiced with humorous personal experiences as a singer and broadcaster. Tickets, priced £10, can be bought from Norman Cummings Textiles, the Black Bitch Tavern, and from Linlithgow Folk Festival Association.
