Link to audio of music:
Ewen Henderson hails from Lochaber in the West Highlands of Scotland and has been naturally steeped in the traditional music and Gaelic culture of the area from an early age. Ewen started learning the fiddle at five years of age and has since then mastered an impressive array of instruments, having had the privilege of learning from many of the true masters of West Highland traditional music – Aonghas Grant Snr. on fiddle most notably – whilst also being influenced by his strong family musical heritage.
Though most commonly found performing with Mànran (the band he co-founded in 2010), Ewen has also been fortunate enough to play all over the world with a host of top Scottish and global cross-genre artists including the world-renowned Battlefield Band, with whom he toured for several years, and World Music pioneers the Afro-Celt Sound System.
