Colin MacLeod Short Bio
Colin MacLeod, the Celtic Fiddle Guru, has been playing Celtic fiddle since the age of 7 and 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.
Update July 2018

Colin MacLeod has recently settled in Port Orange, Florida and two newspapers have written articles about Colin's move to the Port Orange area and his inspirations, aspirations and philosophy on life.
The inspiration for the Guinness Book of Records application took place last November when I played the violin over Mt Everest at a height of 33,000 feet.
