MARTYN BENNETT

Piper, fiddler, composer, innovator, guru of the techno celtic dance scene Martyn Bennett, a winner of the Glenfiddich “Spirit of Scotland” Award, has toured the world with his band ”Cuillin Music” and released the highly acclaimed landmark albums Bothy Cuture and Hardlands.

Martyn Bennett was born in Newfoundland, Canada in 1971 to a family rooted in both the Island of Skye and Wales. He spent his formative years in the Cordroy Valley surrounded by Gaelic-speaking Scottish immigrants who had come from Canna and Moidart in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland in 1820. So it is ironic that the most concentrated source of his musical upbringing was absorbed some 2500 miles from its origin, which, for the most part, had become much diluted since the times of The Highland Clearances and the tragic aftermath of the Jacobite uprisings of 1690-1746.
