Ellie Beaton is our youngest guest at the World’s Room so far. Hailing from just outside Rothienorman, Ellie has been brought up with traditional and bothy ballads alike. Last year she has performed at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Aberdeen Music Hall and as a guest artist at various folk festivals across the country. In the past year she also collaborated Malinky, guesting on their album, Handsel. For 2020, Ellie has qualified for the Bothy Ballad Champion of Champions competition at Elgin where she will compete against the best Bothy Ballad singers in the country. And later this year she moves to Glasgow to study at the RCS.
