I'm a freelance musician, working mainly in folk music. 

My delight in Scottish music stems from my earliest musical experiences- contact with people deeply connected to their tradition in every sense: the language, people, music and landscape of my home town of Achiltibuie. From family members, neighbours and friends I learned the Highland bagpipes and accordion by ear, and built a strong affinity with this music and culture. A final year of School spent at the National Centre for Excellence in Traditional music uncovered a new passion: The piano, and more specifically exploring the ways in which I could express this music. My imagination was truly captured by the seemingly limitless number of possibilities this instrument offered. 

In subsequent years I've graduated from a degree in Applied Music from the University of the Highlands and Islands and I'm currently taking a Masters in Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
