Ryan Young CD Ryan Young

The debut album from award-winning fiddler Ryan Young, who was voted; Up and Coming Artist of the Year; at MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards in December 2016, brings inventive twists to old and forgotten Scottish tunes. Produced and engineered by triple Grammy winner Jesse Lewis. This album places Ryan among a list of world-class musicians who have worked with Jesse, including The Silk Road Ensemble, Yo-Yo Ma, Bela Fleck, Jan Vogler and Brooklyn Rider. Ryan is accompanied by James Ross on piano and Leo Forde on guitar.

Listen to some extracts from all the tracks.

Ryan brings a new voice to Scottish fiddle playing and this is one of the most unique (and beautiful) Scottish fiddle abums ever. It is probably the first traditional album in the UK to be recorded in high resolution audio and it was recorded in the beautiful sounding concert room at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Although not a 'live' album all the instruments were recorded playing together at the same time. The CD has received glowing reviews:

Ryan Young: Ryan Young Ryan Young Music *****

'Hailed as “Up and Coming Artist of the Year” at last December’s Scots Trad Music Awards, fiddler Ryan Young has built up a glowing reputation. This eponymously-titled debut, produced by the Grammy-winning Jesse Lewis, can only underpin his standing.

Accompanied by guitarist Leo Forde and pianist James Ross, the album highlights Young’s intensely intimate and considered treatment of traditional Scots tunes, lending them a fluidity which clearly reflects his interest in Irish music and particularly that of his hero Martin Hayes. He can play like a man possessed, but often opens at a languid pace, dipping and swooping, while that old chestnut, Highland Laddie, prompts some haunting deliberations. However, he cranks up tempo and tension in the reel Willie’s Auld Trews, while his wryly titled slow air, Ryan’s Despair, turns a dark night of the soul into an eloquent triumph.'
