Norrie “Tago” MacIver is a singer/songwriter from Carloway in the Isle of Lewis, best known for being the lead singer of one of the biggest bands in the Scottish folk and trad scene: Skipinnish. Norrie’s past bands also include Bodega and Manran, and along with all these bands he has spent the last decade touring all over the world.
Norrie has many awards to his name including “Gaelic Singer of the Year” which he won in 2011 at the MG Alba Scot Trad Music awards. He has also won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award with Bodega, Album of the Year with Manran and Live Act of the Year with Skipinnish.
In 2018 Norrie was approached by Paul MacAlindin and the Glasgow Barons to write four new songs based on the history of Govan. This was a great opportunity for Norrie who had always wanted to perform with an orchestra. After the success of the first concert, Norrie went on to write a total of 13 new songs that he performed over 3 concerts with the orchestra. Norrie and the Glasgow Barrons then recorded all the songs to make their first album together in 2020.
