Calum is a Scottish folk singer-songwriter born in Galloway and based in Liverpool. He has been writing his own music and gigging from an early age, playing around the UK and beyond over the years. He writes a subtle blend of Celtic folk and Americana music with influences ranging from Woody Guthrie and Christy Moore, to contemporary folk artists such as Kris Drever and Kate Rusby. His lyrics form the heart of his music, with melodic guitar and powerful vocals carrying the words aloft.


 He formed the Folk-Americana duo 'Limerance'  with Jenny Coyle in 2016 and has been playing as part of that ever since alongside his solo career. Calum has supported the likes of Talisk, Kitty MacFarlane, Chloe Foy, Molly Tuttle, Ren Harvieu over the last couple of years and continues to impress with folk crowds up and down the country.

2019 was a resounding success for Calum, with appearances at several festivals including Cambridge Folk Festival and the release of his debut solo EP 'Maybe Half a Lifetime'. Looking to build on the support he is gaining across the folk scene, 2020 is looking like an exciting year.
