Alistair is a piper and pianist from Bishopton. He recently graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and was awarded three scholarships during his studies, notably the Martyn Bennett Memorial Award in 2012. His tutors at RCS were Mary McCarthy and James Ross, but it was his Gran, Nan Maciver, who first sparked his interest in traditional music. Alistair plays with the folk band ‘Barluath’, winners of the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections in 2012. He has recently performed solo at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe and toured with the National Theatre of Scotland production “A Little Bird Blown off Course”, based on the life of eminent folklorist Margaret Fay Shaw.
