Keith began learning the fiddle at an early age in the North-East of Scotland and
soon made an impact on the folk music scene, winning many regional fiddle competitions.
Further notable successes followed including the Dunfermline Young Fiddler of Scotland
aged 15, and the Glenfiddich Scottish Fiddler of the Year aged 20.
Keith learned the particular fiddle style of his home area through teaching by Angus
Shaw and playing with Mary Milne. Keith also played as a soloist many times in the
media including BBC t.v.’s “Ceol Na Fidhle” and radio’s “Reel Blend” and during many
years playing with the Banchory Strathspey and Reel Society where he also appeared
as a soloist on their CD “Tribute to Scott Skinner”.
Outside of the band, Keith works as a research scientist and his hobbies include
learning the art of violin making.
