Flora McCulloch – Voice
Taking part in the Florian’s Theatre musical show as a child sparked my love for all things musical. As I continued through school I loved being a part of musical performances and began taking my singing more seriously. After receiving a distinction in my Grade 8 vocal exam, I decided I would like to continue my vocal studies into further education. I studied ‘Popular Music Performance (Hons)’ and developed my understanding of many different music genres. My enjoyment of performing quickly developed into a love for teaching as I was able to share my passion for music with others.
Now working as a Primary teacher in Inverness, I still perform regularly with an Edinburgh based band singing at weddings, corporate events and festivals. Singing at Belladrum festival in 2018 has to be my most exciting gig!
