Eryn Rae
Hailing from the Scottish Borders, Eryn Rae has been playing the fiddle from the age of 7 under the tuition of renowned Shetland fiddler, Catriona Macdonald. Now based in Glasgow, she has just won the title of BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2022, and most recently completed her studies at the prestigious Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, receiving a First-Class Honours Degree in Traditional Music. Back in 2017, she was also placed as one of four finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2017 which took her to the Royal Albert Hall.


Combining influences from all over Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton, and Scandinavia to name a few, Eryn’s style is energetic and distinctive, hinting to elements from each tradition. Over the years she has been fortunate enough to perform up and down the country, as well as tour further afield in America, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Denmark. In March this year, she had the opportunity to play to a sold-out OVO Hydro in Glasgow in the support band, which remains a personal highlight in her career so far.

Michael Biggins
Michael is a multi-instrumentalist originally from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne but now residing in Glasgow.  He currently plays and tours with TRIP, The Canny Band, Tom McConville, Northern Company and Irish Celtic – Spirit of Ireland Dance Show. In January last year, Michael became BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of the Year for 2021.


Michael recently graduated from The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow under the tutelage of Professor Sinae Lee on piano. Prior to this, he studied at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester where he studied with Graham Caskie. Michael also studied with respected pianists Eileen Bown and Jean Armstrong who are based in Newcastle.
