Multi-instrumentalist Ewen Henderson (fiddle, bagpipes, whistle and piano) hails from the Scottish West Highland town of Fort William, and has been naturally steeped in the traditional music, Gaelic language and culture of the area from an early age. He started learning the fiddle at the age of five, and has since mastered an impressive array of other instruments, having had the privilege of being taught by many of the true masters of West Highland traditional music, from Aonghas Grant Snr on fiddle, to Angus MacColl on bagpipes, whilst also being influenced by his strong family musical heritage. In addition, Ewen has also been fortunate enough to encounter many wide and varying musical influences and acquaintances and has consequently become a highly versatile musician, while staying true to his musical roots.
A rising star on the Scottish musical scene, and part of the talented Mànran group, Ewen joined Battlefield Band in 2010, a Scottish musical institution that was founded well before he was born! He is a superbly talented musician and quickly established himself as a strong musical force within the band, who introduced another great musician to their worldwide audience.
