Last night the world’s eyes were on Scotland for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. Our Frock Coat was worn by Karen Matheson OBE, the lead singer of Capercaillie.
Her specially made frock coat and cuffs were made in our Edinburgh Studio. Karen sang alongside singer Julie Fowlis who recorded the soundtrack to Disney’s Brave. Both the musicians are famed for their Gaelic singing careers and we were delighted to see them having a great time backstage! The women sang a Gaelic song to a stadium of 40,000.
Capercaillie have sold more than a million albums across the world, Karen has also released solo albums and is widely recognised for her haunting vocals.
