“Julie Features in ‘Brave’ Media Weekend”
This weekend has seen a full-on ‘Brave’ media frenzy as the highly anticipated release here in Scotland on 3 August (17 August rest of the UK), draws tantalisingly closer!!
Many of the top publications in Scotland, including The Herald, Daily Record, etc, featured major articles and special supplements about the movie yesterday (including the background to the story, the main cast, how the graphics were created, etc) and today – Sunday 22 July – many more newspapers are featuring special ‘Brave’ articles and supplements (including the Sunday Mail, Scotland on Sunday and the Sunday Herald, etc).
The Sunday Herald article ‘The Voice of Brave’ is a ‘Brave’ 5 page Fashion Special and exclusively features Julie......... and for ease of reference (for those of you who cannot get hold of a copy of the paper itself) here is a direct link to it (unfortunately the many superb images of Julie’s ‘Brave’ fashions - taken on location in Dingwall, Highland, Scotland – which are published in the paper itself, are not included in the link version):http://www.heraldscotland.com/arts-ents/music/the-voice-of-brave.18187941

“Julie Looking Forward to Forthcoming Islands ‘Heisgeir’ Performances”
After all the excitement and ‘red carpet’ glamour of the ‘Brave’ Premieres in the US and here in Scotland over the last few weeks, Julie is very much looking forward to getting back to her musical and heritage roots, with 2 very special performances of her highly acclaimed ‘Heisgeir’ project.
This unique musical work combines newly composed and traditional material influenced by Heisgeir (or The Monach Isles as they are often referred to locally). Building on her own family connections to Heisgeir, Julie has taken inspiration from the geography, history and legend of these now uninhabited islands to produce a new musical work. Using lyrical, filmic, narrative and musical devices, to bring different aspects of the work to life, ‘Heisgeir’ features acclaimed musicians: Éamon Doorley, Duncan Chisholm and Ross Martin.
Julie and the band are performing ‘Heisgeir’ on Saturday 14 July at the multi-award winning Hebridean Celtic Festival in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis; and then as one of the Series of Summer Concerts staged by Seall Events on the Isle of Skye on Tuesday 17 July.
For all those interested in the Hebridean Celtic Festival, you will want to check out this promo video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGehYrQNhpE&feature=youtu.be
