Gaye Anthony



Gaye Anthony is a singer and song writer who lives in Aberdeenshire.


For some people she will be better known as one half of Scottish duo, Gaye and Trish, often called G & T, who specialized in singing songs of the Sea and the Fishing and Scots songs, traditional and new.


As well as performing in various National Trust for Scotland properties, Gaye has sung in many theatres and as part of the duo, at festivals throughout the UK and Europe including regular bookings at both the prestigious Hull Sea Fever festival and the Portsoy Traditional Boat Festival. She has even sung on schooners in Brittany, in Poland and has also appeared regularly in the Netherlands at International Festivals of the Sea. She also sometimes moonlights as a swing singer!


With a warm mature voice she takes her audience on a journey through the songs that mean something to her.


Recently after a concert in Dundee, Sheena Wellington wrote “Beautiful voice, great repertoire of songs. Every one was a stotter!” After a performance at Cromar Folk Club in Tarland, Paul Anderson wrote “ beautiful tone and expression.”
