LAURIE CRUMP – fiddle, high whistle
Laurie, brought up near Moniaive in south-west Scotland, discovered the joys of folk music early on. Later he got into classical music, and played the recorder way beyond primary school. But his first love kept its allure, and he was thrilled to be able to join PCB as fiddler, switching now and again to high whistle to add a little extra sparkle to the band's sound. By day, Laurie is a lecturer in music at Edinburgh College.
