Greg Borland

SMG Tutor

Greg grew up near Inverness in the Scottish highlands and started fiddle lessons with Donald Riddell at the age of 9. After several years and many successes in fiddle competitions all over Scotland, he continued his studies with Hector MacAndrew, an acclaimed fiddler in the north-eastern tradition. Both his teachers inspired and influenced his great love of highland pipe marches and stirring strathspeys. Greg has taught at workshops in this country and abroad for many years and is passionate about passing on his musical heritage to the next generation of fiddle players. He currently performs in the trio BrOg with Gary West and Sandy Brechin, and in a variety of other performance and ceilidh bands.
