Ciarán Ryan was born just over the hill in Brechin, of Irish parentage. He plays the tenor banjo, fiddle, guitar and mandolin, though it is unlikely he will play them all in Aboyne. He moved to Edinburgh to get involved in the music scene there and now ranks among the UK’s foremost tenor banjo players. He has been in demand as a session musician and has also played in groups such as Adam Holmes And The Embers, Salsa Celtica and Dallahan.

In 2019, Ciaran formed the Ciaran Ryan Band. It caused a stir and has taken its place as one of the hottest new instrumental bands on the scene. Escaping form Lockdown it comes to Aboyne on June 9th.
The five-piece line up comprises:
Ciaran Ryan – tenor banjo/fiddle
Sam Mabbett – Button Accordion
Chris Waite – Guitar
Bev Morris – bass
Donald Hay – Drums
