The Sangsters

The Sangsters are a Scottish folk band comprising Anne Murray MBE, John Blackwood and Fiona Forbes.

They have two CDs on the Greentrax label, both produced by Ian McCalman: ‘Sangsters Begin’, and ‘Sharp and Sweet.’

Since 1991 they have been entertaining audiences with their songs and humour at festivals including Celtic Connections, Celtic Colours in Cape Breton, Edinburgh Folk Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Orkney, Stonehaven, Auchtermuchty and many more, as well as gigs from Stornoway to Melrose, Germany, Ireland, England and Canada.

Their repertoire is almost exclusively Scottish, and includes traditional song, Burns, and contemporary songs from the likes of Andy M Stewart and Jim Reid.

In 2012 The Sangsters were involved in the sell out performances of a major new production ‘Far, Far from Ypres’ written by Ian McCalman. They performed it at the recent Celtic Connections festival, and have other performances planned during this WW1 commemoration year.
