Back to Beò: Heisk & Man of the Minch

About Back to Beò: Heisk & Man of the Minch

Heisk
The six-piece group banded together after noticing a lack of female representation in trad music. This inspired them to create the 10-track album with a range of other female creatives.

The energetic band were brought together via Glasgow’s thriving music scene and the six members come from all corners of Scotland.

The funky folk band is made up of Becca Skeoch on electro harp, Catriona Hawksworth on keys, Lauren Macdonald on kit, Megan MacDonald on accordion, Rosie Munro on fiddle and Sally Simpson on fiddle.

Becca Skeoch said: “After a number of years of writing and performing together, we felt it was time to record our debut album that showcased our festival party vibe and celebrated the awesome women working in the creative industries.

Created, performed and engineered by women, the album highlights the talents of underrepresented professionals in the creative industries. We are proud to have collaborated on our debut release with a female producer, photographer, videographer, mixing engineer, mastering engineer, manager and promoter. This is girl power at its best.”

Man of the Minch
Over the past few years, Man Of The Minch has become one of the most exciting names at the forefront of Scottish folk music. Blending traditional Celtic sounds with personal and profound storytelling, he has already picked up his fair share of fans and followers.

He has won Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the 2019 Scots Trad Awards, been invited to play at both 2019 and 2020’s Celtic Connections Festival and had his previous release named as one of the Top Country/Americana Songs to Hear Now by Rolling Stone magazine, he is breathing new life into traditional music whilst staying true to what makes that music so timeless.
