Fifteen of the brightest and most promising young traditional musicians from the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music take their music on the road, featuring Gaelic and Scots song and new arrangements of traditional tunes.

Since its inception the Centre, based in Plockton on the west coast of Scotland, has become nationally and internationally acclaimed, with alumni performing at Celtic Connections, Scots Fiddle Festival, Celtic Colours Festival in Cape Breton and Tartan Week in New York City. They have also performed at prestigious events at the Scotland Office, the European Parliament and the Palace of Holyrood House.

Students of the Centre come from all over Scotland, including the Western and Northern Isles, ensuring that the Centre is truly national and all the many styles of Scotland’s traditional music and song are represented. Several of the students are fluent Gaelic speakers, and all of them are brought into contact with Gaelic and Scots.
