Brief Biography (Courtesy of the Artist's site, 2006)
A pupil of virtuoso fiddler Douglas Lawrence, much of Ruaridh’s musical development took place in the solo fiddle competition scene, winning the Scottish national MOD, Banchory, Kirriemuir, and the Doric festival.
In 2002, he was the Oban Highlands & Islands invitational ‘Fiddle Master’ as well as winner of the prestigious Glennfiddich Fiddle Championship. That same year, Ruaridh released his first album with accordionist Angus Lyon, titled Simple Tricks.
Ruaridh graduated from Strathclyde university in 2005 where he was studying classical music under violinist Clive Thomas. As well as writing and performing with Angus Lyon, Ruaridh has recently recorded sessions for bands and artists such as Million Dollar Disco, the 44’s, multi-instrumentalist Steve Lawrence, piper Chris Armstrong and various singer-songwriters.
