Award winning folk singer & MUSICIAN

Traditional ScotS GAELIC Folk Music

Music is Elena’s inspiration, it is her passion and something she wishes to share with the world. As she says, “Nothing compares to the authentic power of Scots, Irish and Gaelic folk and the way it transports both performer and their audience into its melodies and narrative. No other music seems to convey so vividly the beauty and hardship of a land and its people.”



“With hints of Joni Mitchell, Elena successfully draws together these musical connotations in a refreshingly organic and personal way.”

Amy Flynn, University of Leeds.

Self, Sense, Space

A multi-sensory residency.

‘Art has no boundaries! It’s for Everybody! It’s got that Openness, Intention & Hope. And it doesn’t mater how you interpret it, how you hear it, feel it. It’s your own experience.’ 

This is how I see Art of every creative practice. Everyone is a contributor, whether from the creator’s perspective or from the side of the person who is just there to admire it. In December 2022 I went to Manchester, where I attended a residency organised by Brighter Sound.
