combining the soulfulness and energy of traditional Scottish music with the precision and nuance of Baroque music

In addition to many workshops conducted in Scotland promoting the use of the cello as both a melodic and rhythmic instrument in traditional music, Abby has taught in the US at Gaelic Roots, the National Strings Workshop, the Swannanoa Gathering and Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp. Mel Bay published her first collection of Celtic tunes for cello and the second is in the works. The combination of her teaching, performing and publishing have inspired many amateurs and professionals to play traditional music on the cello.
