Ryan Corbett is one of Scotland's young stars of the future and he brings us a rich and varied programme of music demonstrating the versatility of the accordion. He studied at the Music School of Douglas Academy (Milngavie) and St Mary’s Music School (Edinburgh). Ryan began playing accordion aged eleven and was self-taught until he started learning with Djordje Gajic at the age of fourteen and has since gone on to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Although young, he has won many awards, and in 2021 Ryan was awarded the Keyboard Prize, First Prize and Gold Medal at the Royal Over Seas League Annual Music Competition, becoming the first accordionist to win the Gold Medal since 1993. Ryan performs in a new venue for St Magnus Festival with the potential for a trip to South Ronaldsay to see St Peter's Kirk nestled next to a beautiful beach and the Pool of Cletts.
