His great-grandmother was a fine pianist who is known to have accompanied James Scott Skinner in the late 1800s and his father led his own band for many years. Classically trained but with a lifelong passion for the fiddle, Ian is a familiar face on the Scottish dance scene. He has been a regular at the RSCDS Winter School and made a long-overdue Summer School debut in 2019. Ian has played for weekend schools and functions across the UK and Europe, as well as Canada and Australia. In 2011 he competed in the Glenfiddich Fiddle Championships at Blair Castle.
Ian is an accomplished composer and in 2014 published “The Call of Home”, his first volume of compositions for fiddle and accordion and Volume 2 is currently in preparation. His latest CD recorded with Muriel Johnstone entitled “Robertson: a musical heritage” explores the music associated with the Robertson name through the course of 250 years.
