Alistair McCulloch is one of the most sought after fiddlers in Scotland today, both as performer and teacher. His versatility and breadth of repertoire have kept him at the forefront of the tradition for over 15 years.
Six months in the making, Alistair's long awaited third album 'Four Seasons In One Day' was released in August 2009. The beautifully textured recording captures Alistair's playing at its best, with renewed freshness combined with supreme musicianship.

Delighted to announce that the orchestral score commissioned by South Ayrshire council for the visit of the Olympic torch was recently nominated in the Creative Scotland Awards under the 'Creativity in Schools' category. View on YouTube.
