Catherine has been performing from a very young age, her first band was formed with her friends when she was 12. She released her first album with the band NE3Folk in 2016, Show Us Your Reds after several successful tours in Norway. Keeping her links to Shetland alive is her involvement as vice band lead with Hjaltibonhoga (Shetland Fiddlers) who perform at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo each year and various worldwide tours. In 2019 alone she travelled to Australia, Switzerland and Germany with the Tattoo in addition to taking on the Band Leader position in a week-long tour in Shanghai.In 2022 she performed in a central role of the Electro Pipes set along with fellow fiddler Margaret Robertson.

Her newest project is all female quartet RE:VULVA along side Amy Thatcher, Holly Clarke and Janice Burns. They are a band with a mission to address the gender imbalance in the folk scene today by celebrating all things female, millennial and playing some banging tunes. 


In addition to folk music she can also be seen performing with Southern Inc playing American Southern rock at venues and festivals across the UK and with Needles and Pins, a band fronted by keyboard player and songwriter James Clarke.


On the composition side of things, Catherine recently completed a commission from Golden Dagger winning author Ann Cleeves. Catherine’s composition, A Tune for Jimmy Perez, celebrated the publication of Cleeves’ final novel in the Shetland series of novels, Wildfire.
