ISLA GRANT IN CONCERT
21 Oct 2017
GRAND INTERNATIONAL CONCERTS
The Acclaimed Scottish Singer-Songwriter ISLA GRANT
Returns by Popular Demand AUSTRALIAN Concert Tour
Accompanied by her talented husband AL GRANT and GLEN FLYNN
Following her 2015 triumphant sell-out concert performances, Scotland's legendary singer-songwriter Isla Grant returns to Australia with exciting new songs from her latest album release I'm A Survivor, plus her extensive repertoire of most loved music. The ever-popular singer will be touring with her equally talented husband Al Grant and singer and multi-instrumentalist Glen Flynn.
As an internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter and triple-platinum recording artist, Isla's distinctive voice encompasses all genres, which compliments an evening of old favourites to new songs - this has established her as a major recording artist in the USA, Canada, U.K, Australia and New Zealand. Isla Grant in Concert promises to be an unmissable event.
Isla hails from Scotland, is a household name in Ireland and has developed a large following here in Australia and in New Zealand. She started out as a folk singer, but these days she's known as a singer/songwriter whose music style crosses from country/folk to easy listening...
The Allanton, Berwickshire based Isla never had any doubts about career ambitions, having grown up around music, her father was a piper, her mother was a singer and her grandfather a fiddler. From the age of 14 Isla was performing in the folk clubs of Glasgow and Edinburgh.
“The big acts working the folk clubs, at the time, were Eddie & Finbar Furey, The Dubliners & Billy Connolly, who was a member of the group named The Humblebums” she recalled.
A few years later Isla took her music south of the border, to the clubs of northeast England, a tough learning ground for any newcomer in the business, where audiences clearly let it be known if they didn't like a performance. Someone once remarked, “If you can work these clubs, you can work anywhere!” Isla passed her apprenticeship with flying colours.
Around this time her music moved away from folk to country and she started listening to the music of Merle Haggard, “He is possibly the finest country artist of them all, his songs have got me through a lot of hard times over the years”. The club scene also brought her in contact with Al, who was heading up his own band. They married in 1992, after having worked as Isla Grant & Al Young.
Isla had built up a considerable repertoire, but facing an audience again would be a traumatic ordeal. However, having made the decision she appeared at a theatre in Kelso, where she received an immediate and enthusiastic response and she soon overcame all fear and trepidation. A recording deal was struck with a record company in Dublin, who also represent Foster & Allen. Now after 11 albums, some of which have gone triple platinum, Isla has branched out and started her own record label (I.G.E) and released her first album on her own label in October 2008.
Isla Grant now tours the world and has an ever-increasing fan base that enthusiastically support her live concerts and album releases.
