Welcome to SoundRoutes Singers! We are one choir spread over eight locations in central Scotland – East Kilbride, Bearsden, Hamilton, Carluke, Paisley, Strathaven, Motherwell and Kilsyth. We sing a collection of folk, pop, rock, reggae, world and gospel music. There are no auditions and all are welcome – even those who think they can’t sing!
After our summer concerts in Motherwell Concert Hall and Cottiers Theatre we are now on our summer break and resume the week beginning 11th September. It’s been a great year culminating in two wonderful events 🙂
New members are very welcome so if you haven’t been before and want to give it a try in our new season (or haven’t been for a while), please just head along to the group that suits you best. Sessions are at the times and venues below, for further information please see the Choirs page.

We’re excited that Team Soundroutes now has excellent Choir Leaders in Bree Robertson-Kirkland and Steff Strachan working with Musical Director Shona Brown and we’re sure you’ll love singing with them!
Musical Director/Founder Shona Brown and her husband Andy are delighted to announce the birth of their daughter Mara Grace Eleanor Hurst! SoundRoutes’ newest member arrived on 8th July.
Shona and Andy would like to thank everyone for all their very kind wishes, cards and gifts before and since Mara came into the world. Mum and baby are doing well!
Flash Mob Proposal
We rehearse weekly for our Christmas and summer concerts but also get fun opportunities for other performances. Some members from our Hamilton group were invited to flash mob a marriage proposal on the Glasgow to Hamilton train! SoundRoutes Singers took everyone by surprise and with the whole train carriage joining in – the atmosphere was electric! Stuart got down on one knee to pop the question and how could Michelle say no?! Footage went viral with almost one million views.
Congratulations Stuart and Michelle 🙂
Wedding Flash Mob!
Singers from Paisley, Bearsden and Hamilton loved being a part of Lesley and Allan’s wedding on 5th February! Even members of the wedding party were left speechless as only the happy couple knew about the surprise performance to send them back up the aisle after tying the knot 🙂 Footage to follow!
Please do get in touch for more info or come along to give SoundRoutes a try – our video from a previous summer concert will also give an idea of what we normally rehearse for week-to-week (right hand column).
