Laura-Beth is a singer, mandolin player, song-writer and tutor from Lincolnshire who is now based in Glasgow. Her background is in the Blues, Oldtime and Bluegrass music that her parents play, but after studying the Traditional Music Degree in Newcastle she became heavily involved in the folk scene, mainly performing with six-piece all-female band ‘the Shee.’

In recent years Laura-Beth has performed with renowned folk bands such as Shooglenifty, Frigg and Dougie Maclean’s big band ‘The MacLean Project,’ as well as touring in a new duo with acclaimed guitarist and singer Jenn Butterworth.

In 2012, Laura-Beth’s New Voices commission of songs and instrumentals for Celtic Connections earned her a nomination for the MG Alba Scots Trad Award Composer of the Year and this material developed into her debut album ‘Breathe’.
