I’m from Shetland and have been playing fiddle for more than thirty years. I learned much of what I know from the late, great Dr Tom Anderson, and have travelled worldwide performing and teaching music. With my fiddle on my back, I’ve so far visited Australia, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, the USA, Canada, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sardinia, Turkey, Italy, Germany, Slovenia, Estonia, Poland, Ireland and the UK.
I currently perform in line-ups including Blyde Lasses, Danse McCabre and Shetland’s Heritage Fiddlers. In 2016 and 2017 I was honoured to curate Shetland Fiddle Frenzy, an annual celebration of our aert-kent music culture. Since 2010 I’ve been writing award-winning Shetland-themed songs and find myself increasingly drawn to stories of historic events, particularly those involving women. You can read about my songwriting research here.
You can see a full list of our instructors and the classes they teach on our instructor page.
Schedule a week or two, or three! Or, just sprinkle some classes in between other commitments.
