Bagpipes, whistles, saxophone, composer
From West Aberdeenshire, but now residing in Fife, this musician has made music with a wide range of artists covering folk, jazz and beyond, his instrumental choices partly accounting for his explorative style that sits astride several genres at once.
He has issued seven albums of original music, from ‘Honest Water’ (2001) to ‘In Mumbai’ (2020), and has performed with Capercaillie, Grit Orchestra, Zakir Hussein, Nedyalko Nedyalkov, Sabir Khan, Old Blind Dogs and many others.
He is currently concerned with creating new music inspired by bagpipes and specifically the tradition of piobaireachd.
