Margaret Stewart

Scotland

Margaret Stewart is a renowned Gaelic singer from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. With a career spanning approximately 20 years, and three studio albums to her name, she has a great passion for the songs and culture of her homeland and is in demand as a mentor, teacher and lecturer on various themes of Gaelic song and related history. She has never followed musical trends, preferring to lead rather than follow. Margaret began specializing in pibroch song early in her career, when it wasn't trendy, amassing an impressive repertoire of songs relating to the music of the great Highland bagpipe, and recording two seminal albums with pipers Allan and Iain MacDonald. She continues to develop performances within this genre alongside piper Angus Nicolson and fiddler Allan Henderson in their recently formed grouping, The Margaret Stewart Trio, while also maintaining her role as a solo artist and researcher.
