Originally formed as an offshoot of all-star swing combo the Loveboat Big Band, the Bevvys simultaneously channel the heritage of such classic sister-acts as the Beverleys, the Andrews and the Boswells, while their own diverse backgrounds and collective songwriting skills reinvent the female trio formula.
As life moves on, The Bevvy Sisters move with it, incorporating each new voice to create a new and special blend whilst still retaining their recognisable voice. Currently still on the frontline are Heather Macleod and Gina Rae with fellow Bevvy ‘Sister’ David Donnelly and at this landmark time they are delighted to welcome to the fold the fantastic Louise Murphy, continuing the line of great singers they are so well known for.
Debut album St James Sessions, launched with a sold-out show at Glasgow’s world-famous Celtic Connections festival in 2010, won glowing reviews and UK-wide airplay, while captivating live shows continue to extend their fan-base.
Besides headline appearances including Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Belgium’s Schots Weekend, the Big Tent Festival and Orkney Folk Festival, they’ve collaborated with English folk star Eliza Carthy, Scottish super-trio Lau, and in an international project involving iconic fiddler and singer Dave Swarbrick, Canadian reggae artist Jason Wilson and Scotland’s legendary Dick Gaughan.
The uncanny musical empathy and alchemy that’s always been The Bevvy Sisters’ trademark, stamping their identity on everything from golden Americana oldies to soulful self-penned ballads, resounds with renewed vitality through this fresh ensemble dynamic.
