Ewen Henderson (born 1987) (Scottish Gaelic Eòghann Mac Eunraig[1]) is a multi-instrumentalist folk musician from Fort William in Scotland.[2]

Musical career[edit]

Henderson comes from a musical family, with his sisters Megan (of Breabach)[3] and Ingrid and brother Allan (formerly of Blazin' Fiddles)[4] in particular being musicians of renown. He started learning the fiddle at the age of five under the tutelage of Aonghas Grant Snr.[5]

Besides fiddle, Ewen regularly performs on bagpipe, penny whistle and piano. He is also fluent in Scottish Gaelic and sings in the language.

He has been a member of Battlefield Band (2011-2014),[6] the Pneumatic Drills and Skipinnish but is currently most often found performing with Mànran, the band he helped found in 2011.[7] His Scottish Gaelic singing has been aired on BBC Alba broadcasts.

A keen follower of the sport shinty, he has played for Glasgow University Shinty Club.
