Event Navigation

Fiddler Pete Clark and accordion player Gregor Lowrey come to us straight from their native Scotland for a night of traditional and whimsical tunes. Pete was born and raised in Dunfermline, Fife, and is now based in Perthshire, not far from the birth places of Niel Gow and Robert Mackintosh. He’s performed and recorded with many notable musicians including Dougie MacLean, Rod Paterson, John Watt, Tich Frier and the rock band Nazareth. Gregor started playing moothie at the age of 6, encouraged by his father who was a great mouth organ player. It was during childhood visits to Butterstone, Dunkeld, where his father’s family of 11 siblings got together and played fiddles, moothies, melodeons and sang the old Scots songs that Gregor progressed to melodeon. Around this time, a mystery bus trip to Perth with his father ended at Wilkies music shop and the purchase of a piano accordion. Playing his first gig at the age of 14, Gregor has worked with many bands including: Blackeyed Biddy, Cantychiels, Clan Terra, Ceilidh Minogue and Rusty Nail.
