Findlay Napier

One of Scotlandís finest singer-songwriters, Findlay Napier has been described as Michael Marra meets Elvis Costello, a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright III or a Scottish James Taylor. His songs are full of earthy humour, hopeless love and biting satire.

In 2018 he was the first solo artist to be nominated in the "Best Live Act" category in the Scot's Trad Music Awards. In 2021 he was nominated for "Musician of the Year'.

.His fourth album It Is What It Is was released on 1st October 2021 via The Bothy Society and was supported by a seventeen date Eddi Reader support tour, followed by an nine date tour with Megan Henwood.

Covid did not slow Findlay down as 2020 also saw him working with his wife Gillian Frame, and (composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist) Mike Vass on an album called The Ledger. The Ledger is a time capsule of the 50ís folk scene containing ten traditional Scottish folk songs. As well as being invited to perform The Ledger at the prestigious TED Summit in Edinburgh and at Celtic Connections, it also made three of the top 10 end of year lists on Folk Radio UK.
