Scottish Dance Band
Scottish Country Dances, Ceilidhs, Weddings & Corporate Events
Ann, a founder member of Strathallan, has played the violin since the age of 7. After 10 years of classical training she discovered she could play Scottish dance music, and never looked back.
A chance encounter with the Cambridge branch of the Scottish Fiddle and Accordion Society introduced her to fiddle rallies, Shetland and the late Ron Gonella.
She played a variety of folk music with the Wide Glide ceilidh band in Cambridgeshire, then for 10 years with Poacher's Pocket around Hampshire.
In 2000 she became an itinerant member of Hugh Ferguson's Scottish dance band, Dalriada, touring with them to Australia and New Zealand. She also plays for Corryvrechan, touring with them to Poland, Russia and France.
Ann is also a genius with Quilting and Patchworking, and spends a lot of her spare time teaching and giving talks.
