Discover the greatest composers and performers from Scotland - past and present - and those who were inspired by the country.
Thomas Erskine, the 6th Earl of Kellie - also known as Fiddler Tam, Viscount Fentoun and Lord Pittenweem - was famed as much for his rakish habits as his music. Today he is considered one of the most important British composers of the 18th century, as well as a key proponent of Scotland's music. At the end of the 18th century, he became a leading light of the Edinburgh Music Society and, as a violinist, directed concerts at Saint Cecillia's Hall in Niddry's Wynd.
