Home Teaching Tunes Resources Forum Museum Store Contact

Nigel photoI am a professional musician, and have been involved in the performing, teaching, collecting and publishing of Scottish traditional music for thirty years. In 2017 I was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame. I feel I inspire people around the world with (ahem) an infectious way of transmitting music.

As well as informing people of my teaching activities, this website provides resources for the learning of traditional music, with tunes in various formats, tutorials, articles and downloads. Visiting my on-line store introduces you to the growing catalogue of my books, while the forum allows discussion of music with like-minded enthusiasts.

 When lockdown started in March, I moved my classes, sessions and workshops online. I worked very hard to provide musical instruction, oulets and fun, and from the feedback I have received, many people have appreciated my efforts. However, it has taken it out of me, and I now

 need to have a break before preparing for my activities in the Autumn and Winter, both online and otherwise.I have loved developing the online stuff, and meeting lots of new people, and I will be continuing an online schedule. Check this website for further developments as they are announced.
