MacGillivray is a singer 'of exquisite depth and range, from breathless operatic swoon, lonely as the ocean, to tortured tragic heroine via some wonderful Gaelic incantations'. http://www.macgillivray.org.uk/page_2135829.html Working with electric autoharp, church harmonium, wine glass and piano, MacGillivray creates luminous and stark vocal soundscapes. Two albums, Wolf and Radiophonic Subluna have been performed as support for The Fall, Arlo Guthrie and featured on BBC Radio 3, The Verb. www.macgillivray.org.uk
