London alt-rockers Wolf Alice took to the famous Glasgow Barrowland’s stage on Saturday to perform one of two sold-out shows in front over 2,000 of their adoring fans. However, this was no ordinary Wolf Alice gig. Lead singer Ellie Rowsell took to Twitter on Friday afternoon requesting for any female guitarists around Glasgow to get in touch for the chance to play onstage with the band during their performance of hit single ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’ from their 2015 critically acclaimed album ‘My Love Is Cool’.



16-year-old Freya MacDonald from Fort William was the lucky girl who joined the band onstage at the iconic Glasgow venue after sending Ellie a video of herself playing ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’. Ecstatic, Freya told BBC News:


“When I saw the email flash up on my phone I was running around my house. I went to tell my mum and sisters, we were freaking out – it was crazy.”

Freya says she has never performed in front of people before and prefers to keep her performances to herself in the comfort of her own bedroom, however it seems that Wolf Alice were able to bring out her natural flare for stage performance.
