About Emma

Violinist
Inverness
Freelance violinist based in the Highlands of Scotland.

From the Highlands of Scotland, Emma has been playing the violin since the age of 8. Growing up, she enjoyed learning both classical and traditional Scottish music, and has strived to keep both passions running simultaneously. During her time in Edinburgh she had the pleasure of leading three university orchestras; Edinburgh University String Orchestra, Edinburgh University Chamber Orchestra and Edinburgh University Symphony Orchestra. This has given her the opportunity to work with inspiring conductors including Will Conway, Chris George and Russell Cowieson. She has also lead orchestras for Edinburgh University Footlights and Edinburgh Studio Opera. She has performed in many venues across Scotland including a duet with Nicola Benedetti in Eden Court, Inverness, solo lunchtime recitals in St Giles Cathedral and the Usher Hall, and group performances at Celtic Connections, Greyfriar’s Kirk and McEwan Hall. Emma currently lives in Inverness and plays with various ensembles throughout Scotland including Amicus Orchestra (Glasgow) and the Mahler Players (Inverness). Emma is also a keen composer and has had works performed by Edinburgh University Chamber Orchestra and Edinburgh University Composer’s Orchestra. She has always had a passion for film music and worked on student productions during her time at university.

We had Annasach Ceilidh Band play for our daughters wedding at the Ptarmigan, Loch Insh. All of the guests thought the band were fantastic, they played mood music as guests arrived followed by a full on Ceilidh. The instrumentalist were amazing and the caller was friendly, funny and ensured we had a wonderful ceilidh.
