The Ross Couper Band features Ross Couper on fiddle, Michael Biggins on Piano and Paul Jennings on Drums, with Sam Mabbett sometimes joining them on accordion. Ross Couper is a known virtuoso with a distinctive Shetland style.  Over the past 15 years, Ross has become a firmly established face in the Scottish folk scene performing in duo format with the formidable Tom Oakes, with folk band Bodega, and today his explosive fiddle playing lies at the heart of the mighty Peatbog Faeries – one of the best known names in Scotland’s contemporary folk scene.

The Ross Couper Band was born at Celtic Connections festival in 2023, with Ross joined by the incredible Michael Biggins on piano (BBC Radio Scotland's Young Traditional Musician of the Year for 2021), fellow Shetlander Paul Jennings on drums and percussion, and Sam Mabbett on melodeon. 


What followed was multiple approaches to perform at various festivals the length and breadth of the country and a week in the studio to record the band’s debut album in December 2023.
