Paul Anderson

Scottish Fiddler

One of the most respected exponents of the Scots fiddle tradition today and as such is in regular demand to perform at concerts, festivals and clubs. He has traveled the world with his music and regularly performs on TV and radio. In the North-East fiddle tradition Paul Anderson sets the standard which others aim for. His phrasing, tone and control are all superb."

“Anderson can blaze through a reel with the ferocity of a forest fire on one track, then play a waltz with all the grace and subtlety of a swan on the next. He’s an extremely talented musician, and this multi-faceted compilation is an excellent showcase of the breadth of his work. It’s also a fine introduction to traditional-style Scottish music and a man considered a Scottish treasure.” The Green Man Review

COMPOSER

Amoungst Scotland's foremost traditional composers with around 450 tunes composed in the traditional Scottish idiom, many of which appear in his Lochnagar Collection (published by Highland Music Trust). He has written for TV, film and stage. His music has been performed at the BBC Scottish Proms and he was nominated as composer of the year at the BBC Alba Trad Music awards in 2012.

TUTOR

Paul is one of Scotland's most successful fiddle tutors with his pupils regularly winning fiddle championships all over Scotland. Notable pupils include Anne Nicol, Kathryn Matthews, Stuart Robertson, Eilidh Anderson, George and Stuart Davidson and Glenfiddich Scottish Fiddle Champions Raemond Jappy and Nicola Auchnie. Paul is also in regular demand as a workshop leader and lecturer having led workshops at St Andrew's University, Aberdeen University, the traditional music course at Benbecula college, all five North Atlantic Fiddle Conventions and workshops in Canada, Australia and the USA.
