Alasdair White is an exceptional exponent of West-coast Scottish music and is widely regarded as one of the foremost Scottish fiddler players of his generation.
He was born and brought up on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, a chain of islands of singular importance to Gaelic Scotland’s musical heritage and is perhaps best known as having been a member of Scotland’s seminal Battlefield Band for over 16 years, touring extensively in that time throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
Now resident in New York, Alasdair has performed and recorded as a guest with many of the most well known names in Scottish, Irish and Breton traditional music. Current ongoing projects include Daimh, the Alan Kelly Gang, and his own solo projects both in North America and Scotland.
Alasdair White will be teaching Developing Personal Style in Irish Fiddling at Tune Junkie Weekend 2020.
