Chris Gray

Chris Gray is a multi-instrumentalist and composer who plays piano, highland & border pipes and whistles. Chris has a broad international career in traditional music, performing at festivals and pipe band competitions around Europe, along with academic work at both the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden. His work speaks from a deep and thriving traditional music scene in Scotland.


Fìrinn are a new trad band from Sydney. A modern mix of Scottish trad, dirty riffs, pangs of bluegrass and straight up folky nostalgia. Take the sounds of the untamed highlands, a pinch of sea-salt and a good swig of a Marrickville warehouse party and you've got yourself Fìrinn.

About us

Trad for Good is a social enterprise focusing on promoting traditional artists, live music venues and charities doing great work.

We began as a series of traditional music events that gave all the proceeds to charity. While running these events, we realised there was great potential for everyone involved to reach new audiences.

By connecting a venues with traditional music session players and a charity, all parties benefit from each other’s promotional networks. The venue gets more audience, the musicians get more people listening and involved in traditional music, and the charity collects money and promotes their work. Learn more.
