Steve Byrne

From Arbroath in Scotland’s eastern lowlands, Steve has been immersed in traditional music since early childhood, and continues to write and arrange songs in his native Scots tongue. He is one of Scotland’s most sought after accompanists, especially for traditional song.

Best known as a founder member of innovative Scots folksong group Malinky, he’s worked with Scots songstress Emily Smith (2002 Young Traditional Musician of the Year), rising Gaelic singing star Julie Fowlis, and is an occasional accompanist for stellar piper Fred Morrison.

Steve was the master of ceremony on our very first tour in 2014 and it was a pleasure to have him on board!
