Ryan Young


Focussing on traditional Scottish fiddle music, Ryan brings new life to very old, often forgotten tunes by playing them in his own unique way. His playing is brimming with fresh melodic ideas, an uplifting rhythmic drive and a great depth of dynamics and precision. His sound is very distinctive and takes the listener on an emotional and adventurous journey in any performance.

He was twice a finalist in both the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards and the prestigious BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of The Year. He was awarded Up And Coming Artist Of The Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Awards in 2017 and nominated for the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2018. Further Trad Awards nominations include Album Of the Year, Folk Band Of The Year and in 2022, Musician Of The Year.
