049: The Music of You with Colin MacLeod
Elephants… Airplanes… and Mt. Everest What’s music got to do with it? Colin MacLeod, "The Celtic Fiddle Guru", is opening new windows to the potential of music in people’s lives. Colin is originally from Scotland and now travels the world engaging audiences through playing Celtic fiddle, telling stories, teaching and performing. Colin loves to from the heart as he shares his rich knowledge about the Celtic culture. Colin was a young lad when he started playing the violin in Scotland at the age of 7— thus beginning his musical journey that has so far covered five continents, including Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and North America. Always willing to experience life first-hand, Colin’s personal philosophy is "you never know— unless you go." And, GO he has. Leaving his homeland in Scotland to establish a second home base in Melbourne, Australia he has sought out Scottish culture wherever his travels take him. While living abr oad at the time, Colin and friends co-founded the Scottish Music Festival in Resipole, Scotland. In 2017, Colin’s Celtic Fiddle Playing was taken to "new inspirational heights" by playing the violin in a plane at 33,000 feet over the peak of Mt. Everest in Asia. On the ground again, he was to be found serenading the elephants in the Sumatran jungle with a rendition of "Jungle Bells." Colin’s present focus is growing his international music business in the USA, where he inspires, educates and entertains for schools, colleges, businesses and social events.
