About Sarah Markey

Sarah Markey is a flute player, singer and harpist whose musical upbringing, whilst steeped in traditional music, has a very different influence mainly from the multi-faceted Scottish traditional music scene.  In 2019 she was a BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year finalist and has collaborated with some of the traditional music scene’s top artists, such as Mec Lir and Calum Stewart.

Sarah creatively blends Irish and Scottish traditional styles to create self-penned tunes and folk songs.  Through her work, she has also drawn on her own experiences of living abroad in Spain and her interest in Asturian traditional music.  Although her music charts a story of immigration which is far from uncommon, it’s one that has yet to be fully explored musically.

May 2022 saw the release of her long-awaited debut solo album Leaving Lurgangreen.  The album is dedicated in memory of her grandmother who was from Lurgangreen, co. Louth Ireland and is a reflection on her musical journey so far, featuring a mixture of her own compositions and traditional repertoire from Scotland, Ireland and Spain.
