Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton
Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton, internationally recognised multi-instrumentalists, composers and arrangers, have a long history of shared musical roots from their days with the Vale of Atholl pipe band, at the age of 12. They were mentored by one of the most innovative pipers in the last 30 years, the late great Gordon Duncan. Gordon sparked a deep passion in Ross and Ali for playing pipes with other instruments and they went on to be founding members of the musical powerhouse Treacherous Orchestra as well as playing with bands such as Old Blind Dogs, Salsa Celtica, Dougie Maclean, Shoodlenifty, Zakir Hussain, The Levellers and Capercaillie.
Their individual and joint musical journeys have led them through a long list of high profile awards and nominations, most recently winning Best Duo at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017.
Ross and Ali’s live performances deliver music with atmosphere, energy and passion. Working primarily with their own compositions they combine their rich musical experiences to produce an exciting and beguiling sound with an undeniable synergy forged from a lifetime of friendship.
