Rachel Sermanni – The Betwixt Tour

+ Support From Evie Waddell

Rachel Sermanni is a Scottish based singer/songwriter that makes the mundane moments mystical: shock-positive pregnancy tests in train-station toilets, coffee machine breakages, cold river swims, the regret of not saying ‘I love You’, the moon & how it pulls, bare feet on wood floors, the soft glow of a house plant, ‘what even is consciousness?’, strange dreams lingering in quiet mornings…

She brims with dreamy indie-folk pop that speaks of the struggle and desire to Flow, to love, to live, to feel. Sometimes, her songs speak of the rare moments of quiet-still, found in the midst of this struggle & desire.

Rachel’s most recent offering is her 4th studio album : Dreamer Awake. An in depth assortment of playful and candid vignettes, peeping into life: after birth, after separation and in the wake of recognising the internalised conditionings of patriarchy. She seeks to be honest with herself and her environment. She seeks to express from this raw place. She seeks to speak from the descent, the plateaus, the dream-catchings and contemplations of womanhood. There are no conclusions to be drawn. It is a call to arms, of sorts, to wake up and dream the future, to dismiss the external for a minute and tend to the inner landscape of heart and mind. To not be distracted. To focus on the light and the shadow in equal measure.

Since the release of Dreamer Awake, Rachel has become a mother for the second time and continues to explore this experience while offering her songs and also her insights into creativity.

Support – Evie Waddell, a native of Stirlingshire, is a renowned Gaelic and Scots singer and fiddler. Her musical journey began at a young age, nurtured by her participation in the intergenerational community group Riverside Music Project and her education within the Gaelic-medium school system. She honed her skills further at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, graduating with a BMus in Traditional Music.

Deeply influenced by Scottish musical traditions, Evie’s passion was ignited by the likes of Jo Miller, Ivor Cutler, Martyn Bennet, Lisa O Neill, and Rhiannon Giddens. Her dedication to her craft led to numerous opportunities to showcase her talents across various mediums. In 2020, she captivated audiences with her performances in British Sign Language (BSL), Gaelic, acting, music, and dance in the play “MAIM” by Theatre Gu Leòr, alongside WHYTE.
