Michael McGovern is a singer / songwriter from Glasgow, recently selected to

represent Scotland in the Global Music Match 2022.

His debut album Highfield Suite (Cauldron Music) captures his signature

sound, with fingerpicking guitars, wide vocal harmony, and heartfelt lyrics; a

nod to some of his influences like Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen.

The album received critical acclaim in both the UK and in Ireland, including

BBC Radio Scotland and RTE Lyric album of the week, 8.5/10 Hot Press

Magazine and 5/5 Irish Music Magazine. Michael was endorsed by BBC

Introducing, and by folk music legend Paul Brady; “I love it, what an

unexpected gem”.


Since its release, Michael joined Mary Black on a sold out tour, and has spent

2022 touring in the UK and Europe, including two sold out shows in Glasgow,

and some memorable festival performances including HebCelt and Belladrum.

Michael is already announced for some major festivals next year, including

Cambridge Folk Festival, and is busy working on a new album.

His brand new single, “I’m a Physician” is out now.
