Màrtainn is a traditional musician, from Lochaber, living in Glasgow, out of the West Coast tradition of dance music.  He was a semi-finalist in BBC Radio Scotland's Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2019 competition, and the band were nominees in the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2018.

Gigging at the moment is an enjoyable mix of the Màrtainn Skene Dance Band, the Donald Black Band and the Willie Scott Band, regular involvement with the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, and group tuition in Gaelic arts for school-age kids through Fèisean nan Gàidheal.

It's been an honour to be invited to record with Tide Lines, WHYTE, Donald Black and others most recently, and always inspiring to work with other musicians.
