Freelance Violinist based in Glasgow. Available for ensemble, orchestral and session work all over the UK
Performance with The Tartan Trio Ceilidh Band
Though we had an unwilling group of participants we felt the length of songs/routines went on a little too long to the point we had say stop. We felt the ‘calling’ could have been more enthusiastic. I was told by a staff member of the bar that the band had set up a tab which had never been mentioned to me beforehand.
Colin has just completed the first year of his Masters degree in Performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where he studies with Laura Samuel. From 2010-2014, he studied for his Bachelor of Music degree at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Performing with ensembles around the United Kingdom, Colin has a large variety of musical experience, ranging from chamber music recitals to leading orchestras, as well as performing as a session musician. Colin has been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with many top class musicians, including violin soloist Nicola Benedetti, and conductors Sir Mark Elder and Donald Runnicles as well as orchestral musicians who play in many of the UK’s leading professional orchestras. This year, he has been part of apprenticeship schemes with both the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, where he has rehearsed and performed with both ensembles. Recent engagements include concerts with the RSNO and Sinfonia Cymru, and leading the RCS Symphony Orchestra. He has also performed in prestigious musical festivals such as the BBC Proms, the Edinburgh International Festival, the Cantilena Festival on Islay and the Cantiere Internazionale D’Arte. Colin also enjoys working as an orchestral coach and performs around the UK with his ceilidh band.
