Pete Clark was born and raised in Dunfermline, but now lives in highland Perthshire, not far from where the great Scottish fiddler Niel Gow lived almost three centuries ago. A former tutor at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, Pete continues to compose, record, and to teach privately. (Performances during the past two years have been few and far between, thanks to COVID!)
He directs his own fiddle courses in Birnam, coaches and conducts the Dunkeld & District Strathspey & Reel Society and is founder and director of the annual Niel Gow Festival.
Pete is a regular contributor to the quarterly “Fiddler Magazine”, and guest lecturer on the fiddle music of Scotland at the University of St Andrews. He has previously performed and taught in Canada and the U.S. and has adjudicated at various fiddle competitions over the years.
