About Claire Gullan

Hello!  I'm Claire Gullan based in Glasgow, Scotland. I'm a musician, music educator, part-time student (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Masters in Education in the Performing Arts), and podcaster - living a creative life full of music, art, and creativeness - and I love sharing it with the world!

Alongside my main work as a freelance fiddle and violin tutor, I'm the Creator, Presenter & Producer of Claire's Ceilidh Podcast - a monthly 30-minute podcast featuring the best of Scottish ceilidh music, past & present!.  I fund this myself (an annual PRS Limited Online Music License costing £180, purchasing the music tracks I play on the podcast, and the time it takes to produce the podcast). 
I'd like to grow the Claire's Ceilidh podcast to include inviting bands to do "special episodes" - Ceilidh Band Broadcasts - and the musicians would quite rightly be paid.

As a freelance musician and music tutor, this can be tricky, however, I LOVE making them and love the music, so this is why I do it!  Please do not feel obliged, however, if you can manage, I'd be extremely grateful if you would consider subscribing to Patreon to help me meet these cost - Anything & everything helps!

I am the author of the fiddle & violin tutor book "A Guide To Learning The Fiddle Book 1".  I love music education and sharing my work with others and quite often share my work online, such as my own compositions and string group arrangements of Scottish tunes or pieces by Scottish composers for folk to try.

If you'd like to contribute towards this via my monthly Patreon, that would be AMAZING! but, please do not feel like you have to do this.  I love sharing my creative ideas and will continue to do so.

  • Continue to produce Claire's Ceilidh Podcast.
  • Continue to share my music compositions and music education resources online.
  • Look towards independently recording a solo album including solo work and ceilidh band tunes.
  • Continue to share my artwork online.
