Originally a piper and fiddler, Ewan Robertson’s musical attentions were drawn to the guitar and song while studying at Sgoil Chiùil na Gàidhealtachd, based at Plockton High School. Regularly found playing with many of the UK’s top folk artists, his consummate stagecraft, combined with captivating and dynamic playing, have singled him out from the crowd and resulted in him being awarded the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year award in 2008. Following a successful UK tour in 2009, Ewan’s debut album Some Kind of Certainty (Greentrax) was released in Spring 2010. Megan Henderson hails from Fort William in Lochaber. Coming from a musical family, she first began playing violin at the age of four. As a multi-instrumentalist, she plays piano, accordion and is also a vocalist. From a young age, she has been involved with the Feisean movement, receiving invaluable experience playing with bands on a global scale at festivals including Celtic Colours, Celtic Connections, and Blas. She has also received tuition from some of the world’s most respected traditional musicians. Megan currently plays with Salsa Celtica, Kristan Harvey and the Sanna, and Breabach bringing fiddle, vocals and step dance.
