Gordon Gunn has been described as one of the most exciting and innovative Scottish fiddle players of the times. Born and brought up in Wick, Caithness, in Scotland’s far northeast, Gordon was taught by the highly respected violin teacher Margaret Henderson, who taught many pupils in the north of Scotland. He is a founding member of Scottish group Session A9 who were voted best live act at the 2012 Trad Awards. Whilst working with Session A9, Gordon also tours with Session A9’s Brian McAlpine on keyboards and a variety of musicians including Marc Clement and Phil Anderson on guitar and vocals.
Gordon’s first album for Greentrax Records, “Shoreside”, was released to much critical acclaim and brought his music to a wider audience at home and abroad.
Gordon is also a respected fiddle tutor, composer, session musician and producer. His compositions have been recorded by many artists including Session A9, Ingrid Henderson, American fiddler Rodney Miller, “McGregor, Brechin & O’Headra” and harpist Rachel Hair to name but a few. Gordon is in demand as a session musician and a member of various house bands.
