Eilidh Cormack, from the Isle of Skye, won the An Comunn Gàidhealach Gold Medal at the Royal National Mòd on her first attempt at the age of 18 and was named Gaelic Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards in 2018 and again in 2023. Hailing from a family of well known singers, she has been performing from an early age at cèilidhs, concerts and at festivals such as Celtic Connections, Festival Interceltique de Lorient and Belladrum’s Tartan Heart Festival.
She is one third of the all-female Gaelic song trio Sian, who released their debut album to critical acclaim in 2020. She has also enjoyed a number of collaborations to bring Gaelic to
new audiences, working alongside Simple Minds’ Ged Grimes and a host of other Scottish musicians to create the soundtrack to The Bard’s Tale IV, an Xbox game released September 2018, and appearing in Netflix’s Outlaw King (2018). In the same year, she was named the Scottish Government’s Gaelic Ambassador of the Year for her contribution to the language and continues to be a strong voice for Gaelic to this day.
