Currently recording and producing music from his Studio, Gran’s House.

“Through his brilliant duo with fiddler Ruaridh Campbell, his work with the marvellously pigeonhole-resistant Halton Quartet and his achievements as producer on myriad recordings, accordionist and keyboard player Angus Lyon is one of the traditional music scene’s most creative talents. However, this is only one facet of his scope, and on this Celtic Connections New Voices commission, he reveals a Zappa-esque skill for a smartly turned melody, effortlessly blending banjo, vibraphone, fiddle and saxophone, a penchant for jazz fusion, and a weakness for Earth Wind & Fire-style party soul-funk” The Herald.
