About Camryn Ruthven:

Uniting her passions for music and history, Camryn (she/her) explores the Gaelic lineage through song, reclaiming the Scottish traditions of her ancestors and tending to their embers to honour the ancient ways through this modern-era. She believes that it is critical that we work towards decolonizing ourselves and reclaiming the ancestral teachings within our lineages so that we might become aligned allies for harmonious cross-cultural connections, collective healing, and sustainable ways of life. Language and music, as living cultural traditions, have the power to carry these teachings and share their resonant power with others. Camryn weaves the medicines of earth-centredness and Gàidhlig traditions into her own creative tapestry through poetry, song-writing, vocal improvisation, and instrumentation (primarily piano/guitar/bodhrán). Her distinctive vocal style draws its inspirations from the raw, highly-ornamented, earthy qualities of waulking songs, as well as the influences of Gàidhlig musicians such as Griogair Labhruidh and Kathleen MacInnes
