'music of lucid beauty and emotional depth'
Robert Maclean, poet
I am a Scottish composer and songwriter whose work is greatly influenced and inspired by the landscape of Scotland, its people and birdsong, especially that of the Highlands where I live. I enjoy both creating my own music and working in collaboration with others, and have published several collections of my music, including most recently a book of my Orkney tunes..

This website presents a selection of my music, projects and inspirations, including the stories behind the music, collaborations with poets and writers, composing for bagipes, harp and other instruments, and my songwriting.

If you would be interested in using any of my music or are interested in a possible collaboration please get in touch via the Contact page.
