Both grandfathers were pipers, one from Skye and one from South Uist. His father and Uncle were pipers and his mother a Gaelic singer. He started playing at 10 and his teachers were Iain MacFadyen and later lain Macdonald. He had a successful time in junior competitions winning the under 18 section at Northern Meeting 2002 and also the under 18 Young Piper of the Year. As well as his teachers, Angus credits his father, Angus MacColl, Gordon Duncan and John McSherry and many others as inspiring influences.
Comes from another musical family based in Portree. Andrew began playing drums in the Skye Pipe Band at the age of 9 and went on to study for a degree in traditional music at RSMDA in Glasgow. Well schooled in the various genres of traditional music, he also plays pipes and whistles. He credits as influences the John Ellis Ceillidh Band and legendary piper Donald MacLeod. He is currently a member of ceilidh band 'Deoch n Dorus'. He is a teacher who enjoys playing and learning, and though deeply rooted in tradition is keen to experience new musical and performance styles.
Born in 1991 in Glenelg, the youngest of the band members and a remarkably accomplished player both on guitar and accordion. A chain of family members going back generations on his mother's side were and still are Gaelic singers and Psalm Presenters. His elder brother Iain plays the accordian and Murdo started learning at the age of five, jealous of his big brother's accordian lessons. He learnt privately from Ross MacPherson and Ally Mackenzie and continued at school with Blair Douglas. He lists his influences on `Box' as Angus Lyon and Martin Green and on guitar Ewan Robertson, Mathue Watson and Kris Drever.
