Multi-instrumentalist Euan Drysdale hales from Bathgate. As a trumpet player in his youth, he was part of the strong brass band tradition of his home turf. He continued studying the trumpet at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, but since graduating has made a name for himself as a guitarist and pianist collaborating in the world of rock and blues, as well on the traditional music scene. As a member of the band 'Soft Monster', he explored the progressive rock movement while guesting with other bands such as 'Big Vern And The Shootahs' and 'Land'. A long time friend of Alastair Savage, he co-wrote some of the tracks on Closer to Home and Fool for a Time, and alongside Iain Crawford has contributed as arranger and co-producer in the group's recording projects.
Euan is currently head of performing arts at Chryston High School near Glasgow.
