Alyth McCormack is 'the voice at the leading edge of gaelic song'. Raised amidst the Gaelic singing of the Island of Lewis, in the Scottish Outer Hebrides Alyth McCormack began singing when she was very young. Many of Alyth's songs are in Gaelic, the language of her native Isle of Lewis, but her thoughtful arrangements and her subtle, intimate delivery speaks volumes in itself.
With voice described as 'sublimely sweet', Alyth is one of the most exciting singers on the Celtic scene.
Alyth has appeared solo on the German Scottish Folk Festival Tour (Jan'00), at Celtic Connections (Jan'01), the Hebridean Celtic Festival (July'99) and Kaustinen Folk Festival (July'99), the Highland Festival(Jun'00) and also The Edinburgh Festival 2000. This year she will be touring with 'Shine' in Greece, England on Folkworks' 'Sharper than the Thorn' tour, Italy, The Highland Festival, Spain & The West End Festival in Glasgow.
