While studying Scottish Harp on the BMus Traditional Music programme at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Neil developed a keen interest in ornamentation and developed a hybrid style of playing with both fingernail and pad. He is currently a PhD candidate at the RCS exploring ornamentation and technique within contemporary Scottish traditional harp practice. Neil also has a keen interest in reflecting upon the role of the harp within modern Scottish traditional music, exploring the revival of the harp in Scotland and widening access to the instrument.
