Ella Munro is a folk singer originally from the Isle of Skye but now based in Glasgow. In 2009, she was awarded a place at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music, where she spent 5 years studying Scots and folk song. Ella then studied further at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. It was during this time that Ella formed the Ella Munro Band.
After supporting acts across the central belt, including the likes of the Paul McKenna Band and Archie Fisher, the Ella Munro Band then became regulars on the folk club circuit around the UK and enjoyed performing across the country, from the Edinburgh Fringe to Durness to Jersey. Ella’s unique combination of folk song, Scots song and original songs has enraptured audiences across the country with the band able to both play foot-stomping upbeats songs to engage the entire audience but also perfectly execute a nuanced traditional ballad. Ella was a finalist for the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Award in 2017 and later successfully released her debut EP in 2018, The Final Trawl. Ella’s summer 2023 tour encompasses venues across the UK and is not one to be missed!
