Rachel Sermanni, a 19 year old singer songwriter from Carrbridge, is to perform an intimate, acoustic set in the wonderful setting of the historic Kildonan Church on Wednesday, August 10.
Over the last 12 months Rachel has been winning over audiences and making friends everywhere she goes. She went to London to play the Communion night at Notting Hill Arts Centre having had her track, My Friend Fire, recorded and produced by Ben of Mumford and Sons, feature on the first Communion compilation album after they discovered Rachel playing on a beach in Ullapool.
Rachel has been honoured to have supported many acts over the past twelve months including Mumford and Sons on their famous Highlands and Islands tour as well as, amongst others, KT Tunstall, Newton Faulkner and John William Grant.
Other shows include The Great Escape and Celtic Connections, plus T in the Park, HebCelt Festival, Wickerman Festival and the Cambridge Folk Festival to name a few.
Looking to the future, there are many plans are afoot for this fast rising Highland star. Recording sessions are booked, and every spare minute between shows is spent rehearsing and writing as Rachel prepares to release her debut EP later this year.
