Trish McLean began her singing career when, at the tender age of 19, she was thrust into the limelight at the Sun Inn Folk Club, in her home town of Stockton on Tees, with the folk group Skerry.
A professional, classically trained musician, she is noted for her distinctive voice, beautiful harmonies, thought provoking songs, not to mention her devotion to Middlesbrough football club.
A regular at her local Guisborough Folk Club, Trish has been influenced by the songs of Joan Baez and Annie Haslam. She has appeared at many folk venues including the Saltburn Folk Festival, Sedgefield Folk Festival, The Arc, and Karin Pronk’s Folk Lounge in the Hague.
Trish has sung in duos with Ian Wright and currently Judith Haswell. Her song writing has produced a number of memorable songs including the haunting classic “Who’s the Hero now?” and the award winning “Mary dance”.
Her gentle humour and interpretation of folk music has created a wide appetite for her services throughout the folk clubs in the North East.
