Beth Malcolm



“I just discovered Beth Malcolm’s voice recently…and was absolutely blown away by her voice. Absolutely fantastic.” Kathleen MacInnes, BBC Radio Scotland

Beth Malcolm is a singer-songwriter and keyboard player from Perth. Beth’s music is folk-inspired, and she sings a mix of traditional, modern and self-penned Scots songs. Thanks to a sustained indoctrination from kin and other folkies, Beth has been showing up to screch out Ally Bally Bee since she was old enough to stand on stage. After a brief hiatus from folk music in her teenage years, Beth rediscovered the old songs and music she had grown up with, as a student living in Glasgow.

In January 2020, Beth was awarded a prestigious ‘Danny’ award at Celtic Connections. That same year, her song ‘Leavin’ Loch Leven’ was announced as a winner of Fèis Rois and NatureScot’s ‘In Tune With Nature’ project. In February 2022, Beth toured Germany as part of a Young Trad ensemble. Beth has also collaborated on a number of album projects; including Adam Holmes, Lewis McLaughlin and ‘Gaelictronica’ sensation Niteworks’ album.

With a nomination for BBC Scots Singer of the Year 2021 under her belt, Beth is currently recording her debut album.
