Ewen Rorie and Owen Tierney

Ewen Rorie grew up in Finstown and started playing the fiddle at a young age. He was tutored by Jennifer Wrigley and Jean Leonard. Through learning with Jean, he started playing regularly with a group of friends who later formed the group Skeldro.


Ewen's grandad, Owen Tierney, has been very influential in Ewen's music, supporting him and taking him to weekly sessions in The Reel, where they played together and along with others. Both share a love of traditional Orkney music, as well as Scottish and Irish tunes.


They enjoy having a tune together when Ewen is home from his studies in Glasgow, and are looking forward to playing for everyone at the festival.
