Originally from a classical background, he started blurring the lines into a unique folk, blues and acoustic style. This led to Ally spending a his final year of school at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music in Plockton.
In 2021 and as a product of lockdown, Ally released his debut EP, “The Longest Night”. Playing all of the instruments, layering dozens of his vocals and writing much of the original music, the four tracks were brought to life by the careful ear of Scott Wood at Oak Ridge Studios.
Now taking on the role of producer and engineer, 2022 and 2023 saw the release of four EPs, each reflecting the influences of each season. These EPs featured some Scotlands best traditional musicians including Anna Massie , Hannah Rarity , Innes Watson and Josie Duncan.
The Tolbooth café concert series was made possible with thanks to funding by Creative Scotland.
