A4: Fiddle (Adv) Aidan O’Rourke - Trad Fiddle with a twist SH Workshop Room 2
With an Irish ancestry, O'Rourke grew up in the Highland port of Oban, his family settling later to the Island of Seil. His earliest years were coloured by the sound of Irish traditional music played in the home by his father, and he began formal training on the fiddle at the age of eight. Studying locally at first, he went on to absorb a range of different playing styles from various distinguished Highland teachers. Come and learn from one of Scotland's greats.
