Brought up in the heart of Scotland, Elsa’s love affair with music began at an early age. The 5th child of 11 and great grand-daughter to the renowned Scottish painter William McTaggart, Elsa grew up on a self sufficient small holding in a remote area of the Tay Valley, Aberfeldy, Scotland.
Having spent the last 10 years performing abroad with breaks for 2 small tours, this is Elsa’s “Coming Home Tour”.
Elsa also accompanied Finbar Furey of the “Fureys” on the Smile tour in 2010.
