Kate Young is a Scottish singer, fiddle player and composer. Kate will be accompanied by master fiddle player Patsy Reid (formerly Braebach) and virtuoso cellist and player of the musical saw Su-a-Lee.
Kate’s recently released debut album – ‘Swimmings of the Head’ – includes a broad range of songs and tune sets, many of which combine different traditional music sources with self-penned works. This is perfectly complemented by the other two musicians in her trio who have each performed in a range of styles from classical to Scottish roots to traditional Indian. As well as performing as Assistant Principal Cellist with Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Su-a-Lee has recorded on her musical Saw for Eric Clapton and performed at Celtic Connections with Jack Bruce of Cream and the folk band Lau.
