A new live music club – dedicated to presenting the very best in folk, trad and roots-based!

Scots Trad Music Awards ‘Up And Coming artist of the year’ – fiddle player Ryan Young – brings new and exciting ideas to traditional Scottish music. He recorded his debut album with triple GRAMMY winner, Jesse Lewis, who has worked with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma and Bela Fleck. Ryan holds both a first class honours and a Masters degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, as well as being a twice-finalist in both the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards and the BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year.

Ryan focuses mainly on Scottish music, bringing new life to very old, often forgotten tunes by playing them in his own unique way. He is influenced by the fiddle playing of County Clare, Ireland, and has been fascinated by the playing of renowned fiddlers such as Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny, PJ and Martin Hayes, and Tommy Potts from Dublin.
