Both graduates of the BMus Traditional Music course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Scott Figgins and Scott Garden studied principally as pipers and have also gained extensive experience across disciplines on other instruments.
Both from Irvine in Ayrshire, ‘The Two Scotts’ grew up piping together in their local pipe band and have been linked, both musically and as friends, since an early age.
Performing now as a folk music duo blending pipes, whistles and guitar; they bring a sound to the stage that can be recognised as having years of performing together and friendship at its core. They celebrated this musical bond by releasing their debut EP “Horizonto” at Piping Live 2019.
Winners of the 2016 Marymass Folk Festival Open Stage Competition, Scott Figgins and Scott Garden have performed for the Royal Family; and have also supported the likes of The Battlefield Band; Salt House and the Islay Sessioners in concert and festivals across the country.
