Marni Swanson Of The Grey Coast is one of Andy’s most famous airs and has been performed by many Scottish bands and is know by nearly all Scottish musicians.
PIANIST, composer, arranger and one of the most sought after musicians in the Highlands and beyond, Andy Thorburn’s genre-hopping musical journey reflects his geographically expansive life story, encompassing everything from classical to jazz, rock and folk and much more besides.
Over the past three decades, Andy has established himself as keyboard player of choice for many projects, writing tunes that have entered the “traditional” repertoire, leading big-band swing, composing Gaelic choral works and other large-ensemble pieces and playing with such high-powered traditional and folk-fusion outfits as Blazin’ Fiddles, the Ghillies and Babelfish. He also teaches widely and is a government adviser on music curriculum development in schools.
Andy was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame in 2014.
