The Academy of Folk team

Our mission is simple. Build the most comprehensive community of traditional folk players and produce incredible course materials to help budding players learn.



Our resident Scotsman’s passion for fiddle playing makes the Academy of Folk his dream job. Can usually be found working on new courses.



Luke can’t play an instrument to save his life, but heads up the production and customer service at the Academy of Folk.


Resident Fiddle Teacher

Chris has had over 35 years of folk fiddle experience. What he doesn’t know about fiddle playing isn’t worth knowing.
