The Drouthy Cobbler, 48 a High St, IV30 1BU Elgin

The Drouthy Cobbler is pleased to welcome back acclaimed singer-songwriter Siobhan Wilson for a hometown gig as part of her new UK tour. After being brought up in Elgin, Siobhan spent time absorbing the French culture in Paris before returning to Scotland, where she currently lives in Glasgow.

Since returning to Scotland, Siobhan self-released an EP, receiving critical praise and radio play across the BBC network (Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 6 Music, BBC Scotland) and been championed by Lauren Laverne (BBC Radio 6 Music) as one of her Headphone Moments.

As well as playing many major venues and festivals in the UK (Celtic Connections, Cambridge Folk Festival, Wickerman), Siobhan Wilson has toured in the USA, France, Sweden, Belgium and Poland.

Having supported the likes of Idlewild, Martha Reeves and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, she is making a name for herself as an artist in her own right and is destined for big things.
