Hailing from the Scottish Borders, Eryn Rae has been playing the fiddle from the age of 7 under the tuition of renowned Shetland fiddler, Catriona Macdonald. Now based in Glasgow, she has just won the title of BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2022, and most recently completed her studies at the prestigious Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, receiving a First-Class Honours Degree in Traditional Music. Back in 2017, she was also placed as one of four finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2017 which took her to the Royal Albert Hall. Combining influences from all over Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton, and Scandinavia to name a few, Eryn’s style is energetic and distinctive, hinting to
elements from each tradition. Over the years she has been fortunate enough to perform up and down the country, as well as tour further afield in America, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Denmark. In March this year, she had the opportunity to play to a sold-out OVO Hydro in Glasgow in the support band, which remains a personal highlight in her career so far
