The author of some 450 tunes, Paul Anderson is today’s leading exponent and scholar of Scotland’s elegant, classically-influenced north-east fiddle style, with its intricate, up-driven bowing and distinctive grace notes. A former research fellow at Aberdeen University’s Elphinstone Institute, where he compiled a collection of largely unpublished north-east tunes, he was taught by another of the region’s great players, Douglas Lawrence, and can trace his tutoring lineage right back to Niel Gow. Anderson’s latest album is 2017’s The High Summit, whose all-original, richly evocative material was inspired by the people, landscape and history of his native Deeside, including its iconic mountain Lochnagar and its numerous standing stones.
