Beth Gleeson

Beth has been playing music professionally since the age of 16. She’s been involved in many different projects during that time as a soloist, as a duo act with her husband Chris, and in her family folk band, The Soorleys.

The quality of her vocals are impressive, fluent and clear. Pretty and delicate at one moment, powerful and bold the next. From unique takes on the latest indie-pop songs, to fresh versions of 70s classics, from the likes of Joni & Fleetwood, Beth has a way of interpreting songs that translates to all age groups.

Her versatility as an entertainer makes her a great option for all types of functions. Whether it’s a chilled out, low-key set or an upbeat, dancey gig, she’s got the repertoire & musical know-how to make it special, relaxed & fun.
