Ingrid Henderson


The Hendersons of Lochaber are custodians of a musical lineage stretching back several centuries. Originally pipers to the MacDonald’s of Glencoe (Clann Iain Abrach), the present generation, to which Ingrid belongs, have become widely known as fine instrumentalists and singers.

Ingrid was the youngest ever recipient of the Radio 2 Young Traditional Musician of the Year award, winning it at the tender age of thirteen and since then has cemented her position as one of the finest instrumentalists in Scotland today, playing with the likes of Gaelic supergroup Cliar, Blazin’ Fiddles and more recently with Margaret Stewart & the Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band. She is principal harp tutor at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music and until recently lectured on the BA Gaelic and Music at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Isle of Skye. She is also much in demand as a Musical Director having worked on various BBC Alba television projects including the flagship Hogmanay Show, Ceilidh na Bliadhn’ Ùire.
