Allan Carr

Allan Carr grew up in Aberdeen, Scotland, surrounded by the rich traditional music of his homeland, and is one of the finest singers from that tradition. His Celtic/Old-Time guitar backup perfectly complements many styles of fiddle tunes! In his 30+ years of making music on guitar, mandola and upright bass, Allan has performed throughout Canada, the British Isles and the U.S. He currently performs both solo and with his wife Jane Rothfield, and with the national touring dance band Coracree. He plays roots music, both Celtic and Old Time, that was often learned directly from the source, while expanding on that tradition with newly composed songs and tunes. He is also currently woodshedding on clawhammer banjo, but hasn’t unleashed it yet on the public!
