About Willie McArthur

If it’s a full-on, modern interpretation of Scottish & Irish bangers you’re after with guitars, percussion, harmonica, mandolin, bodran & vocals, look no further than Willie McArthur.

Moving through the sets to classic dancefloor fillers, Willie covers it all.

Hailing from Kirkcaldy, this is as authentic as it gets.
