Graham Rorie

Orcadian fiddle and mandolin player Graham Rorie is an award-winning folk musician based in Glasgow. Nominated for ‘Musician of The Year’ at the 2023 Scots Trad Music Awards and a finalist in the 2021 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, Graham has been making a name for himself as a performer, composer, session musician and producer since he graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Traditional Music Degree.

A founding member of folk-quartet Gnoss, Graham has performed at festivals and events worldwide. He also released his debut solo project, The Orcadians of Hudson Bay in 2021. This suite of newly-composed music was inspired by his fellow Orcadians who travelled to northern Canada to work for the Hudson’s Bay Company during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Alongside his performance and touring work Graham also teaches fiddle for the University of The Highlands & Islands and is the artistic director of the Scots Fiddle Festival.
