Colin MacLeod

Celtic Fiddle Teacher, Coach


My name is Colin.

My musical journey started at the age of 7 when a music teacher asked a class of primary school pupils, 'Who would like to play the violin?'

Since then, I have played in orchestras and Celtic bands in both Scotland and Australia, with some musical adventures along the way in the USA and South Africa!

I am now based in Melbourne, Australia and regularly run Celtic fiddle workshops around Australia aswell as performing at festivals!

For the first time, with a couple of friends, I organised a Fiddle Festival in Scotland in September 2015 in Resipole, Argyll on the shores of Loch Sunart.

This was a dream come true and everyone who attended the festival went away inspired and energised .

Playing and teaching Celtic fiddle has been a passion of mine for as long as I am able to remember.

I would like to share some of the tips and tricks which I have learnt over the last thirty years to help you to take your Celtic fiddle playing to the next level.
