  • Local Fort William duo Hannah MacRae (Fiddle) and Lauren Byrne (Guitar) will be keeping you entertained with plenty Scottish Trad tunes.

    As a west coast fiddle player, traditional music has been in Hannah’s family for generations. Having left school last year, Hannah has taken time to establish her own personal style and and varies her repertoire by playing with accomplished musicians from different places and backgrounds. Hannah is a strong believer in keeping up tradition – in particular the culture of traditional music and Gaelic – and has been teaching fiddle for the past year. She has just started the BMus Traditional Music course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. In 2016 Hannah made the final of BBC Scotlands young traditional musician of the year award.

    Lauren is involved in pretty much everything going on relating to Scottish trad music and Ceilidhs around Lochaber. After playing in the local Ceilidh Trail while growing up she took over the reigns in 2017 and now organises everything for todays young musicians.
