Aidan Moodie

Aidan Moodie is one of the newest in a long line of talented young musicians to come from Orkney’s thriving traditional music scene.

An accomplished guitarist and singer, Aidan’s music has seen him entertain audiences all over the world, reach the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award twice, and perform to British royalty. He has performed as part of many different projects including Orkney Folk Festival’s ‘The Gathering’ (2015), Phil Cunningham’s ‘Ur: The Future of Our Past’, his own award-winning folk band Gnoss, and as an accompanist for many of Scotland’s hottest up-and-coming folk singers.

Now 21 years old, Aidan is entering his final year of study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland specialising in Scots Song and Acoustic Guitar as part of the BMus Traditional Music degree.
