Ape House’ is a Glasgow-based trio specialising
in contemporary traditional music, delivered in a raw, energetic style. Brought together by local sessions, its members had the opportunity to blend styles and influences over several months before formally becoming a band.

Craig Harrison is a fiddler from Co. Clare,
Ireland. Immersed in Clare’s rich culture from a young age, Craig competed at many fleadhanna cheoil throughout his teens. He moved to Glasgow in 2016 in order to study mathematics and since then, he has become increasingly involved in the Glasgow scene and enhanced his Clare fiddle style.

Lachie Robinson grew up surrounded by music,
particularly Folk song and Highland cèilidh traditions. His musical ear was developed further through local Fèisean, where he learned guitar. Meanwhile, listening to genre-bending artists such as Shooglenify, Martyn Bennet and The Poozies nurtured an eclectic
sense of style. Lachie values experimentation and musical curiosity above all, furthering his craft through a BMus in Traditional Music at the RCS.

Wallace Calvert began learning both classical
and traditional music on cello. His passion grew as he participated in various youth projects, taught himself other instruments including concertina, and eventually went on to study traditional music at the RCS. Wallace has become a versatile multi-instrumentalist,
seeking to refine his skills and sensitive playing style through the exploration of Irish, Scottish, Northumbrian, and other traditional folk repertoire.

Ape House creates a fresh, lively and full
sound. Their current focus is upgrading their repertoire with refined arrangements and member-composed tunes.
