Pete Clark

One of Scotland's top fiddlers, Pete now lives in Perthshire not far from the birth places of Niel Gow and Robert Mackintosh. The beautiful Perthshire landscape has been the inspiration for many of Pete's compositions to be found on two great Scottish fiddle CDs - The Birnam Oak and Sycamore.

Pete's debut CD 'Fiddle Case' was chosen as one of 1996's albums of the year on BBC - Pete Clark - Scottish Fiddle Scotland's 'Travelling Folk'. His top selling CD 'Even Now' features the music of Niel Gow whilst 'Mackintosh at Murthly' features the compositions of Robert Mackintosh. His most recent album 'Now & Then' showcases some of Pete's compositions alongside a few gems from those of the great Scottish fiddle composers, Niel Gow, Willam Marshall and James Scott Skinner.

In addition to his highly successful solo career, Pete has been a member of several notable bands including Heritage and Smeddum and is currently a member of the highly successful Benachally Ceilidh Band and the Niel Gow Ensemble.

Pete has performed and recorded with many notable musicians including Dougie MacLean, Rod Paterson, Rab Noakes, Jim Malcolm, John Watt, Trilok Gurtu and Nazereth. Pete is also an instructor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.
