Elspeth McVeigh is an accomplished singer of early Scottish and European Renaissance and baroque music.
Born and raised in Scotland, she learnt numerous, unusual and almost forgotten traditional songs and ballads from her grandmother (including by Robert Burns) which she delights in singing.
Elspeth lives and performs in Vancouver and frequently returns to her native Scotland to perform early Scottish and European music. She has sung at a number of historic venues including Traquair House, Mellerstain House (an 18th cent. jewel) the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Rosslyn Chapel (da Vinci Code) returning there in June for a concert of 16th cent music of the court of Mary, Queen of Scots.
Elspeth usually sings with lute and baroque violin, viola da gamba and recently 18th cent flute. She also likes to experiment and plays with mixed instruments including Chinese violin and harp, small pipes and clairsach (early Scottish harp).
