Colin Grant-Adams
Scottish Singer Songwriter

Colin, born and raised near Winchester, England in a predominantly Scottish community, was exposed to the culture and heritage that would shape his career. Originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, and a gifted musician himself, Colinís father was an early influence on his musical career.

Colin served his apprenticeship as a welder, but soon left his trade for life on the road, playing the folk circuits of Great Britain and Europe. He worked both as a solo artist and as a member of the highly acclaimed folk group, The Ozark Mountain Boys.

Colin immersed himself in his Scottish heritage when he moved to Oban, on West Coast Scotland, in the early seventies. Where for next 15 years he performed and promoted Celtic and Country music shows at the Great Western Hotel. Also he worked with local area musicians and toured throughout Scotland, the Hebrides & Orkney Islands, Scandinavia, and America.

In 1996, the Glasgow Highland Games of Kentucky, awarded Colin an Artist in Residence Fellowship in Celtic music, enabling him to study, compose and record music about the early-century Scots who arrived in America bringing with them a wealth of culture. It was through the residency that Colin came to relocate to the United States and the Glasgow, Kentucky area.
Robert E. Harrison, President of the Glasgow Highland Games.

"Colin Grant-Adams is an extraordinarily talented vocalist and guitarist. His live presentation demonstrates his awesome ability to both deliver his own songs with meaning and add depth and insight to many traditional favorites."
