Neil Sutcliffe comes from a broad musical background, being exposed to everything from Scottish ballads to boogie-woogie from a young age. He is originally from Stirling, and picked up the accordion from his dad and fiddle from his mum: family has been at the core of his experience of Scottish traditional music, continuing to influence and inspire him. Neil is currently studying classical accordion at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, but remains active in the traditional music scene. He has taught accordion in several community workshops, and for Feis Fhoirt. He has been performing with Roo Geddes for several years, and accompanied him at the Niel Gow Scottish Fiddle Awards in 2017.
