Festival 2015 - Fèis 2015

SiigaAcoustic Stage, Friday


Growing gently from the haunting landscapes and enchanting seas of the islands, Richard Macintyre slowly emerged from the darkness of winter on the Isle of Skye.

Working alone, recording through the night in a cupboard full of old coats, as the snow melted, Siiga remained, it’s roots bursting into life through his captivating, atmospheric song-writing, delicate artwork and transcendental videos.

Recently signing with US indie label Mod Y Vi Records in Colorado, Siiga travelled back to the United States performing across New York and Los Angeles to critical acclaim last year.

2015 begun by opening for label mate Nathaniel Rateliff on an intense run of tour dates starting in Ireland crossing the U.K, France, Holland and finishing right across Germany where Richard has transformed his ethereal and haunting sound into an intricate stage show receiving heart felt reviews matching those surrounding his debut release - 'The Sea and The Mirror'.

This is spirit music – music not created but channelled. Natural as the air we breathe… It’s happy sad, moves you beyond understanding and beguiles in a way so little does any more. R2 Magazine
