Islander, Colin MacIntyre (aka Mull Historical Society) is an award-winning musician, author and now playwright is proving himself to be one of the UK’s most prolific talents. He has released eight acclaimed albums to date under the name Mull Historical Society, having achieved two UK Top 20 albums and four Top 40 singles, since his Gold-selling debut album, ‘Loss’. His debut novel ‘The Letters of Ivor Punch’ won the 2015 Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award and he has just adapted it for the stage opening Spring 2019 in Glasgow’s Oran Mor and Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre. He has been voted Scotland’s Top Creative Talent at the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Awards, as well as into the Greatest Scottish Artists of All Time public poll, and has toured worldwide, including with The Stokes, Elbow and REM. His memoir, ‘Hometown Tales: Highlands & Hebrides’, about his journey from island boy to international musician, and his first book for children, ‘The Humdrum Drum’, are out now. Colin also curates and performs on a new live platform he has created, ‘From Stage to Page’, which features other musician/performer-authors: the most recent of these shows of words and music coming together was a sold-out show at The Roundhouse in London as part of Frank Turner’s Lost Evenings. He has led the children’s feeding and educational charity Mary’s Meals in London, and once spent a year on the books of the Scottish professional football club, Queen’s Park. Despite his absence of a working shield – Colin is a descendent of the Scottish Warrior Poet, Duncan Ban Macintyre.
