Christine Weir

I was born in Paisley, Scotland and my parents moved our family to South Africa when I was 5 - so I grew up far away from my roots and my culture. I studied drama and singing, and although I went on to become a professional singer, I never felt truly at home in any genre – that is until I discovered Celtic music. Somewhere, at the back of my mind, I must always have felt a kinship with this genre of music; over a decade ago, after reading the story about the MacDonald massacre I wrote my song The Clan MacDonald without realizing that it was “Celtic”. I guess I ‘ve always been drawn to the story- telling, dramatic aspect of song, so when I discovered Celtic song – the songs of Robbie Burns, Caroline Nairne, and all the anonymous traditional songwriters, I fell head over heels in love and realized I had found my musical home.

I have a band called 'Christine Weir and The Kilts' and in July this year I released “Weir Celts!” a collection of Celtic songs. After listening to some of the Celtic musicians out there I am inspired to write more and more material - I’m already working on a new album. Last year I completed an online course 'Celtic Music Traditions', through the University of Madison, Wisconsin and I’m currently completing an Dip LCM in Scottish Traditional Music, as well as learning to play the penny whistle.
