Lauren Collier

Friday, October 18 , 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Talented Scottish musician Lauren Collier is making a name for her virtuosity on the fiddle and captivating vocals. Originally from Irvine in Ayrshire, Lauren now lives in Glasgow and has been writing and playing her own music for the last six years. She has toured all over Scotland and has played in Canada, India, Ireland, Denmark and Sweden. With her illustrious band comprising Ali Hutton (Old Blind Dogs, Treacherous Orchestra), Paul Jennings (Wolfstone, Shooglenifty) and Gus Stirrat (Fat Suit, Blue Rose Code), she masterfully crafts a live performance portraying a sense of place, emotion, and time.

Lauren released her highly anticipated debut album Uddevalla in December 2023. An atmospheric mix of songs and instrumental tracks from around the world, Lauren has taken inspiration from the music of multiple countries for her first record. The album takes listeners on a musical journey from Haiti, through Sweden and India, and onto Indonesia and Greece, all the while offering a unique blend of traditional and electronic music that is incredibly diverse, yet wholly cohesive.

Each track has evolved over time, influenced by Lauren’s own musical tastes, life experiences and the diverse cultures she has encountered on her travels. The result is a captivating fusion of melodies and rhythms that invite the listener to explore the rich diversity of our world through the universal language of music.
