Scottish singer-songwriter Caitlin Gilligan who will be playing this years Cambridge Folk Festival, is this Tuesdays featured act.

“Young Scottish singer-songwriter Caitlin Gilligan grew up in rural Galloway, now based in Liverpool, her songs still echo the wild empty spaces of her childhood. Her influences include artists such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake as well as more contemporary artists such as The Tallest Man On Earth and Laura Marling.” 

“Mixing old folk songs into sets of clear-throated and poetically-crafted originals, she demonstrates refreshing insight; whilst simultaneously summoning the ghosts of the 1960’s Greenwich village.” 

“Although still a fresh-face on the folk scene, she has already managed to secure support slots for artists such as The Rails, Rachel Sermanni and Ewan McLennan.”

“…she, like a siren of the sea, draws you into an intimate, and enchanting performance.”FRINGE CULTURE BLOG
