Gregor 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 was sent to continue 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.
After qualifying as a piano technician, he lived and worked in Edinburgh for many years. During that time he was fortunate enough to play and record with many great bands and artists, including Kathryn Tickell, Davy Steele, Jim Malcolm and Burach, to name just a few. He toured extensively all over the UK and as far afield as Colombia, Australia and Russia.
Gregor is passionate about passing on his musical heritage to the next generation of fiddle players, which he does at his fiddle camps in Spain and Scotland. He has also continued to tour and teach in other countries.
