Rua MacMillan Trio - Originally from Nairn, in the Scottish Highlands, fiddler Rua Macmillan is quickly making a name for himself in the world of Scottish traditional music having been awarded the prestigious title of BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year and being voted ‘Instrumental Album of the Year’ in the Fatea Awards, and picked as a ‘Top of The World’ album by Songlines Magazine. ‘Rua MacMillan is one of the brightest of the current generation of rising stars to emerge from the R.S.A.M.D.’s Scottish Music course – a fiddle player with already great experience of major live events, from Cambridge Folk Festival to the St. Louis Highland Games. As a stylist of Scottish fiddle he is second to none. As an arranger of traditional music in the modern idiom there is no one I’d listen to more! I await the future development of his career with great anticipation.’ Brian McNeill, founder of the Battlefield band and former head of Scottish Music at the R.S.A.M.D.
