Fiddle player Alastair Savage was born and raised in Ardrossan, on the Ayrshire coast. His early inspiration came at his Father’s knee, where the sound of the accordian introduced Alastair to the traditional music of his homeland. He studied fiddle and guitar as a child, playing both traditional and classical music, before heading to Douglas Academy Music School in his mid teens to study classical violin more intensely. Alongside this, he was also the winner of The Land O’Burns Scots Fiddle Competition. He then went on to study at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and the Royal Academy of Music in London, before returning northwards to join the BBC Scottish Symhony Orchestra. Alastair always kept in touch with his trad roots whilst studying, playing reguarly in ceilidh bands and other folk groups.
