Josie Duncan and Owen Sinclair

Josie Duncan and Owen Sinclair are a diverse folk-song duo made up of two voices, guitar and clarsach. From opposite corners of the North of Scotland, the pair bring their own flare to traditional songs with vocal harmonies and story-telling arrangements exploring Gaelic, Scots and traditions from the world round. The two regularly perform separately in many bands and together in innovative ‘Gaelictronica’ band INYAL where multitalented Sinclair plays drums alongside soft electronics, Gaelic song, fiddle and pipes. From ballads of heart ache and loss to industrial songs, Josie and Owen always focus on putting the story of the song across.
Josie and Owen joined Live Music Now Scotland in 2019.

Josie Duncan is a young folk singer from the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis. Having been immersed in Glasgow's fast moving traditional music scene for the past few years where she studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Josie's crystal clear voice is equally at home in Gaelic, Scots or English.

A multi-instrumentalist within the Glasgow trad scene, Owen has made his mark as an international performer and teacher. He performs regularly with Tannara, Westward the Light and Inyal, as well as staple tutor at the renowned Glasgow Fiddle Workshop.
