Calum Gilligan


Calum is a Scottish singer, songwriter and guitarist, now based in the beating heart of British music, Liverpool. Influenced by the likes of Paul Brady, Joan Baez and Woody Guthrie, he plays a subtle blend of Scottish, Irish and American folk music with captivating imagery and the lyrical maturity of a much more experienced songwriter. His guitar playing provides enough intricate melodic accompaniment to his singing that he can easily command a stage and captivate an audience on his own.


‘gifted musician, playing the guitar beautifully…’ - Liverpool Echo (print)



​‘… a gifted songwriter with a voice to back it up’ - Folk Radio.


2022 saw his debut album ‘Footsteps on the Broken Road’ released in April to a sold-out Liverpool launch crowd and to widespread

acclaim, followed by a successful UK tour in April and May and a busy summer of festivals up and

down the country.


2023 has already seen him play on the main stage at the Great British Folk Festival and Love Folk Festival and with plenty more planned, it won’t be hard to find him wherever you are!
