Allan Carr
Allan is one of Scotland’s finest traditional singers with a unique repertoire of songs, ballads and stories that reflects the culturally rich region of his native North East of Scotland. Born and raised in Aberdeen, Allan grew up in a musical family of singers, fiddlers, pipers and accordion players. He began singing traditional songs in his teens, learning from such source singers as Jeannie Robertson, Lizzie Higgins, Jimmy McBeath and Stanley Robertson. He performed regularly at the Aberdeen Folk Club, and at festivals in Scotland, winning first place at Traditional Music of Scotland Association singing competitions at Keith TMSA and Newcastleton TMSA. Allan’s easy singing style and subtle interpretations of the old ballads quickly established him as one of the finest younger generation traditional singers. His knowledge of the music and background to the songs he sings, brings the songs to life and relevant to the present day
