Findlay Napier

Fèis Arainn is very fortunate to have one of Scotland’s most creative singer song writers and guitarists teaching at this year’s Fèis.

Findlay will be directing the instrumental ensembles and small group workshops at Sgoil-feasgair.
One of Scotland’s finest songwriters. In 2021 he was nominated for Musician of the Year at the Scot’s Trad Music Awards and in 2018 he was the first solo act to be nominated for Live Act of the Year.

Described as Micheal Marra meets Elvis Costello, a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright or a Scottish James Taylor this master storyteller’s songs are full of earthy humour, hopeless love and biting satire.
