Hi! My name is Magaidh Bryan, and I am the main writer behind the Nightingale. As you probably already know, my favourite things are music, poetry, reading, and vintage fashion.

How is your name pronounced?

Just like you’d pronounce ‘Maggie’. 😀 In fact it’s the same name, just with the Scottish spelling.

Where have you traveled?

I have been to/lived in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Kansas, Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah, Arizona, Montana, and Illinois.

What is your favourite music genre?

That’s a really tough question–so I’ll just be lazy and put up a list of my favourites. 😀

  • Opera
  • Classical
  • Film Scores (i.e. Lord of the Rings, Tolkien, Narnia)
  • Celtic
  • Big Band Music (mostly from the 1940’s)

Do you dance?

Yes! I Swing dance, I’m learning other types of ballroom dancing, and tap dancing.

What choir are you in?

I’m not currently singing with an advanced choir (I’m singing with the High School choir at the school I work for, just to help them out), but the last choir I was in was the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera Chorus.

How old are you?


Do you speak any second languages?

Tha beagan Gaidhlig agam. I speak a little Scottish Gaelic.

What instruments do you play?

Violin, Piano, Pennywhistle, Viola, and I’m learning the Flute.
