Colin MacLeod Short Bio

Colin MacLeod, The Celtic Fiddle Guru, has been playing Celtic fiddle since the age of 7 and now travels the world playing, performing, teaching and speaking through his MBA Of Life Program.

MBA = Music Business Adventure

Imagine competing in the Golden Fiddle Awards in Scotland, playing in a classical Orchestra in Scotland or Germany, teaching at a String Camp in Tasmania, playing over Mt Everest in Nepal in a plane or giving the elephants of the Sumatran jungle a rendition of Jungle Bells.

Well, this is Colin's life.

The Celtic Fiddle Guru Academy (online Celtic fiddle lessons) officially launched in the US in July 2018.

Can you believe that Colin was in Florida in a kilt? The location was Mt Dora,  Florida just before Colin hopped on a train to play at a Celtic Ales and Brews event.This was a wonderful tourism initiative for the area.  The train reminded Colin of being back in Scotland and travelling on the West Coast line from Oban to Glasgow.
