Piping concertfred2

Fred Morrison is one of Scotland’s great and outstanding pipes and whistle players. The celebrated Gaelic piping tradition of his father’s native South Uist forms the bedrock of his intensely expressive, uniquely adventurous style.

Tonight’s opening set comes from 4 students from the Plockton Traditional Music School :
Alasdair MacKenzie on Guitar
Steven Stark on percussion
Malin Lewis on pipes
Ewan White on box.

Fred‘s outstanding technical prowess saw him winning many top competition prizes while still at school, and inspired by pioneering acts like the Bothy Band and the Tannahill Weavers. malin-lewis-band2-600Although his first-love instrument remains the great Highland bagpipes, over the years his mastery has expanded to encompass whistles, Scottish smallpipes, or reelpipes and Irish uilleann pipes.

He was also one of the first Scottish artists to forge dynamic links with his Celtic cousins in Brittany and north-west Spain, adding further to his repertoire of influences and tunes, and has long been renowned as an outstanding composer.

“widely regarded as one of the greatest Scottish pipers alive today.”
