The current group consists of West Lothian singer, Hannah Rarity, the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2018 with finalists Rory Matheson – piano (Drumbeg), Amy Papiransky – voice (Keith), David Shedden – bagpipes (Glasgow), Luc McNally – guitar & voice (Dipton) joined by 2017 winner, Charlie Stewart – fiddle (Perthshire).
The TMSA’s Young Trad Tour and first CD was back in 2004 when they took up the initial 2001 project to tour these wonderful up and coming artists from BBC SCOTLAND Young Traditional Musician of The Year annual music competition, and have done so every year since! Showcasing all 6 finalists including the winner of the competition.
