On stage, Adam has become very well known from touring with well loved bands such as Nae Plans, Session A9, Treacherous Orchestra, Peatbog Faeries and Croft no. Five. Adam is one of the most sought after teachers of Scottish Fiddle music anywhere, having been invited to teach at camps all across America, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. He has been described as “highly empathic, warm, encouraging and – incredibly – often believing himself to be hilarious.”
