Tutor: Mary Ann Kennedy - Glasgow Gael Mary Ann's earliest memories are of a home filled with song. A classical training - and a brief diversion running the BBC’s Gaelic news service – led to a career as musician, broadcaster, composer and producer, now based in Lochaber with husband Nick Turner at Watercolour Music. A founder member of Cliar, ‘All-time Best Album’ winners at the Scots Trad Music Awards, she’s twice winner of the Lorient Concours International de l’Harpe, double Gaelic Mòd gold medallist, and a Saltire Awardee. In 2017, she released her debut solo album, ‘An Dàn’. The follow-up, ‘Glaschu’, is out this month.
