Ceitidh Mac blends the warming tones of the cello and soaring vocals to create a transformative sound that puts a progressive twist on the alt.folk genre.
Originally from Wales, but now based in Newcastle, Ceitidh’s honest and intriguing lyrics have been mesmerising audiences in the know across the UK. While the folk influence is prominent in her songs, the smoky style and lo-fi studio sound combines with a contemporary electronic edge, embellished by unusual instrumentation. Her live show is an innovative take on traditional and alternative folk songs, sitting alongside her own original material which explores topics ranging from illuminating everyday experiences to subjects of deeper self reflection.
Ceitidh Mac started off 2020 supporting alt.folk hero Rachael Dadd and progressive jazzers Get The Blessing, having previously supported the likes of Laura Misch and Lankum. Focusing on writing and refining her sound, Ceitidh will be releasing a debut EP landing in 2021.
