Fowlis, who sang the theme song in Disney's movie, "Brave," will perform with her band at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University on Tuesday.

World renowned Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis, a Scotland native, will perform with her band Tuesday at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University as part of the college’s Honor Series.

Famed for her role singing the theme song in Disney’s movie “Brave,” Fowlis has made a name for herself not only in her native country but in the United States and beyond.

Fowlis is from North Uist, Scotland, a rare place where Scots Gaelic is spoken as commonly as English, the nation's dominant language. Fowlis is known for her ability to present the folk culture of her historic home country in a contemporary style, with appeal in popular culture. She is a five-time Grammy winner and the first solo Gaelic singer to be radio playlisted on the BBC.

Embry Riddle’s Honor Series is a tradition of roughly 20 years. It brings performers, speakers and guests representing broad topics of interest for students, faculty and staff, and the public.

The performance is from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at the Lemerand Auditorium in the Willie Miller Instructional Center, 600 S. Clyde Morris Blvd., Daytona Beach.

The event is free, but space is limited, as the venue has only 350 seats.
