Roary Skaista is a local singer-songwriter, whose pure singing voice and intricate picking patterns on the guitar give an authentic folk sound to their songs. Whilst their music may sound traditional, however, their lyrics are up-to-date, witty and poignant, challenging audiences on current issues such as mental health, LGBT+ rights, gender equality and the environment. Roary's latest single on the dangers of salmon farming saw them into the finals of the EuroFishion Song Contest, an international competition as part of World Fish Migration Day 2020.
