ABM are delighted to announce a new working relationship with the brilliant young Scottish fiddler player Ryan Young. Brimming with fresh melodic ideas, uplifting rhythmic drive and dynamic depth and precision, the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2016 Up and Coming Artist of the Year takes audiences on an emotional and adventurous musical jourmey in his performances.
His engaging and modest stage presence belies his phenomenal musical virtuosity. Ryan focuses mainly on Scottish music, bringing new life to very old, often forgotten tunes by playing them in his own unique way. He also takes inspiration from a number of great Irish players, including Clare fiddlers Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny, PJ and Martin Hayes and Tommy Potts from Dublin.
Ryan generally appears with driving guitar accompaniment from Jenn Butterworth.
