The Musician


Annie Grace’s richly abundant talents on vocals, bagpipes and whistles have featured in countless projects. Born and raised in the Highlands, she came from a musical family, singing harmonies with her four siblings around the kitchen table. She took up the highland pipes at the age of 11, and her first performances involved marching up and down Fort William high street with the Lochaber Junior pipe band. After completing her degree at Glasgow School of Art, she served her musical apprenticeship busking on the streets of Glasgow, in folk clubs, pubs and various other venues including a residency on the Waverly paddle steamer.
 
She is probably best known for her work with The Iron Horse, the Unusual Suspects, Scottish Women and Grace, Hewat and Polwart. For the past twenty years, Annie has been a dominant presence on the Scottish music scene. She has toured globally from America to as far afield as Turkmenistan and shared stages with many revered performers. In demand as a session musician, Annie has also featured on numerous albums as a backing vocalist and instrumentalist.
