 I 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 an (ahem) 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.
