Linda Rankin is an Australian Scottish Fiddler, Teacher and Composer currently based in Auchterarder, Scotland.  She has been playing violin since the age of 8 back home in Adelaide where she studied classical violin alongside her lifelong passion and love, traditional music, specifically the music of Scotland.  It is this passion that has seen her travel and study and immerse herself over the years in all things to do with Scottish Fiddle.

She is a qualified Music and Primary Classroom teacher, and has work with a variety of community groups including the Blackford Fiddle Group. Linda loves working with all ages to help build upon, re-enter into or begin a musical journey that hopefully can flourish and grow as a life-long one.

Linda has four albums that are her own projects and three involving other bands and musicians.  You can find her latest album on Bandcamp; ‘There to Now.’

She is the founding Director of The Adelaide Scottish Fiddle Club, and now as a member of Hjaltibonhoga or Shetland Fiddlers who perform as the Fiddlers of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
