Graham Rorie and Hamish Macleod - Fiddle and Guitar

Orcadian fiddle player Graham Rorie is an award-winning folk musician based in Glasgow. A graduate of the Traditional Music course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Graham has been making a name for himself as a performer, composer, session musician and producer.

While still in the early stages of his career Graham has gained a wealth of performance experience appearing at festivals including Glasgow's Celtic Connections, Celtic Colours (Canada), Festival Interceltique de Lorient (France) and Celtica Valle D'Aosta (Italy). He has also toured Germany and Denmark with the Paul McKenna Band.

As a founding member of quartet 'Gnoss', Graham has picked up his second Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections, reached the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and been nominated for 'Up and Coming Artist of the Year' at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards in 2017.

Having begun his musical career learning and performing traditional music, Hamish Macleod's work now encompasses electronic, jazz and orchestral styles. Since gaining a music degree from Glasgow University Hamish has been accepted onto the Live Music Now scheme and has appeared on nationally broadcast music programmes for the BBC and RTE.

The fiddle and guitar duo have performed on the Live Music Now scheme since 2018. Their performance style stems from Graham's Orcadian background and Hamish's Gaelic roots to showcase diverse fiddle styles paired with warmly entertaining stories.
