Siannie Moodie plays the clàrsach or Scottish harp, a wonderfully versatile and soothing instrument which suits Siannie’s inclusive music tastes. She delights in sharing her passion for Gaelic, folk, historical and traditional music from Scotland and other Celtic nations, as well as sing-a-longs and classical music too. Her performances inspire listeners to relax and settle in for a fun and harmonious concert with melodies to soothe the soul and harp playing to wonder at.
Siannie began learning this delightful instrument after trying one as a child in her home of Ross-Shire in the Highlands of Scotland. After being taught her very first tune - a beautiful Gaelic Air - she was hooked and has never looked back.
Highlights of her career thus far include performing solo at prestigious music festivals and venues, from Usher Hall to Belladrum Festival, and creating musical projects that benefit local communities. She also tours with her music to many other countries, showcasing Scottish music abroad and collaborating with local inspiring musicians.
Live Music Now Scotland has provided Siannie with wonderful musical opportunities including playing historical music at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at the National Museum of Scotland, and putting together exciting programs of music for, for example, the National Gallery of Scotland. Since joining Live Music Now in 2017 Siannie has also played in care settings, schools and more, sharing the enduring power of live music and aiming to create meaningful engagement with music, each other and ourselves.
