“Every once in a while a flashing musical comet appears and sweeps everything in its path. This is the case of the young Scottish violinist Ryan Young, virtuoso with precision and inventive playing…” - Festival No Border, Brest 

Ryan Young, a multi award winning fiddle player, is injecting fresh and innovative ideas into the realm of traditional Scottish music. He has gained international acclaim for his captivating fiddle interpretations.

His fiddle artistry is characterized by fresh melodic innovations, an infectious rhythmic energy, and an impressive range of dynamics and precision. His signature sound takes the audience on an emotional and adventurous journey with each performance.

Ryan's latest album 'Just a Second' was released in the UK and Europe in October 2023 to critical acclaim "Young’s technical ability is simply jaw-dropping, the pace frantic, dizzying, triumphant."
