Born in the coastal town of North Berwick in Scotland, Madelaine grew up
listening to and singing Celtic music and songs. Her repertoire includes many
traditional Scottish and Irish ballads, and folk songs by modern day composers
such as The Corries, Dougie MacLean and Karine Polwart. She also enjoys
singing bluegrass/country/gospel and a wee bit of jazz.
Prior to leaving her beloved Scotland in 1991, when she married an American,
Madelaine was the Development Officer for Scottish Visitor Attractions.
Although she had to give up her career Madelaine continued to sing as she
moved from one continent to another, eventually settling in the Rocky Mountain
State of Colorado in 1999. Having sung in a women's a cappella chorus, opera
and musical theatre in the USA, Madelaine decided to concentrate on the music
she loves most - the songs of her homeland, and her new CD "Away To The
Westward" is the result.
In 2011 Madelaine and her family moved back to East Lothian, Scotland, where
she presents a Scottish trad/folk show on community radio and is organising live
folk concerts locally.
