Anne Martin

Anne Martin has sung and researched Gaelic song since a child, being born and brought up in Trotternish on the Isle of Skye where she learnt a wealth of her tradition from older neighbours and relatives. She has toured  America, Australia, Asia and Europe and has sung at many Scottish festivals. She won a PRS New Music Biennial award in 2017 allowing research and collaboration in India, looking especially at displacement and song. She has an MSc in material culture and Highland history and is passionate about culture, 'sense of place’, the story and roots of the song, as well as community development and how music and art can assist this.
