On the fiddle
Music has always been a big part of my life. I started learning the piano and the violin at primary school, but my road to Damascus moment happened after arriving at secondary school and discovering traditional fiddle music. To begin with, I played with some of the big fiddle orchestras and fiddlers' rallies all over Scotland. In 1978, at the ripe old age of 15, I went to a residential fiddle course at the University of Stirling, which changed my life. While these courses are now extremely popular and held all over the world, this was the first fiddle course of its kind. It introduced me to the incredible variety of fiddle music encompassed in the Scottish tradition.
