Biography

Ex-Iron Horse singer Annie has a wonderfully distinctive soft and breathy vocal style which throws a whole new bright light on some old sturdy folk classics on the album “Take Me Out Drinking Tonight.” Strings and keys and percussion to back her, tradition behind her, and inspiration shining through her. Gently charismatic and eminently listenable.

Annie grew up in the Highlands. Music played a large part in her formative years, and she began learning to play the bagpipes at the tender age of ten. Music Festivals and close harmonies with her four siblings gave her a solid grounding in singing and her wasted youth was spent marching up and down Fort William High Street with the Lochaber Junior Pipe band.
During her four years at Glasgow School of Art, she joined her first band, The Gunsmoke Trio and Pedro, achieving fame as buskers of great volume, outside M&S in Argyle Street. The Mighty Peelly Wally Ceilidh Band was her second group, which took up residency in the Vicky Bar. Then came the invitation to join a new band subsequently named Iron Horse.
Iron Horse became one of the acclaimed “new wave” folk bands of the nineties. The group was in huge demand, constantly touring and recording.In February 2004, Annie released her solo debut album Take me out drinking tonight to an overwhelming response.
