Up-and-coming Scottish fiddle player, Ryan Young, has packed a lot of experience into the last three years. Ryan gained a first-class honours bachelor’s and master’s degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, was nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards and the BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, picked up a Celtic Connections award and released his justly acclaimed debut album, produced by triple Grammy-winner Jesse Lewis.
Praise has been coming from all sides for his fresh melodic ideas, uplifting rhythmic drive and great depth of dynamics in his reworkings of traditional Scottish tunes and in his own compositions.
Guitarist Jenn Butterworth is one of the foremost accompanists from the Scottish acoustic music scene, performing regularly with The Blas Collective, The Kinnaris Quintet, Claire Hastings and Ross Ainslie.
