Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival

Craig McFadyen Trio

Craig is originally from Oban on the West coast of Scotland and is delighted to be invited   back to perform at the festival.  His playing is very much based on the traditional Scottish Dance Band style with his influences being Bobby MacLeod and Iain MacPhail to name but two.  Being from the West coast, Craig has a great love of pipe  music  and  Gaelic Waltzes  which  are  sure  to  be  included somewhere in the programme! This year, Craig is fortunate to be accompanied by two of the country’s most successful Dance Band leaders, his father Hector McFadyen on second accordion and Matthew MacLennan on piano.  This will be Hector’s first time at the festival. Matthew has performed with his own band and other artists in previous years.
