Kirsty Law is an innovative Scots songmaker and singer based in Edinburgh. From a background learning from some of Scotland and Ireland’s great tradition bearers such as Sheila Stewart, Cathal McConnell, Sheena Wellington and Margaret Bennett, she has gone on to compose her own material in a style dubbed by Record Collector magazine as ‘folk art-pop’. She has co-written songs with the likes of Karine Polwart and her original songs have been played widely on national radio, even once being mentioned in the Scottish Parliament. However, throughout her various composition projects, she works in constant reference to the Scots tradition. These rich songs and ballads form the bedrock of her repertoire and provide infinite inspiration.
