Kevin Allison resides in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, Scotland, where he has lived most of his life. His interest in playing traditional music started when he was fourteen years old and first learned to play the tin whistle. As his interest in music developed, he began learning other instruments, including guitar, mandolin and piano. Through the years, he has also turned his hand at playing the accordion, banjo, flute and percussion. Kevin believes he has been fortunate to have had the opportunity and experience of gigging with numerous bands and musicians over the years, mostly around Glasgow, playing at concerts, ceilidhs, sessions, and other music events.
