Jim Malcolm

Jim Malcolm

Jim Malcolm is the ultimate Scots troubadour. Travelling the world with his guitar, harmonicas, and engaging wit, he sings the traditional songs of Scotland and his own masterfully crafted songs in a style which is modern and accessible, yet utterly authentic. He is highly regarded as an interpreter of the songs of Robert Burns, and has been described as “one of the finest singers in Scotland in any style”.

Celia Ramsay

Celia Ramsay has been teaching kids to sing or dance from the time her kids were in pre-school through high school. Blame for her several-years as an artist-in-residence at St. Helena schools goes to Calvaleigh, who repeatedly told her teachers, “My mom teaches dance and singing.” Celia has been singing since the days of “Here We Go Loopty-Loo”, is a regular performer at the Freight singing both traditional Scottish songs, and 1940s style jazz. She teaches harmony singing workshops with Libby McLaren in Berkeley.

Celia Ramsay’s affinity for her Scottish heritage burst into bloom in her teens; that was a long time ago, and that passion has followed her throughout her life. As a singer of traditional music, her voice is captivating and convincing, and as delightful “in the old style” as with accompaniment. Listeners will understand why she feels that this music is not merely the territory of her ancestors in Scotland; these songs are about the universal human condition. She loves the lyrics; you will love her voice.

“Lord, lord, lord. Celia, what an incredible voice you have!” Ray Edlund, KPFA
