Aidan Scrimgeour is a multi-instrumentalist and composer based in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up in Salem, MA Aidan was inspired and supported by the school music programs, the local music scene and the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival. After spending a couple years in the Contemporary Improvisation Program at New England Conservatory studying piano performance, he graduated with a B.A. in American Studies from Tufts University. In 2014, Aidan composed the music to “Only Human,” an original musical that premiered in Ames Hall in Salem. Also in 2014, he performed at the Jazz and Soul festival as a member of the Pocket Money Orchestra and has led several workshops as a part of the festival. He currently writes music and plays accordion for Pumpkin Bread, a five piece contemporary folk group, influenced by the Boston fiddle-music scene. Pumpkin Bread released its second album of original music this past spring and was recently featured on “A Celtic Sojourn” on WGBH. The past few years Aidan was the piano faculty at the Northeast Jazz and Recording Camp in Salem. He has been performing the music of Vince Guaraldi during the holiday season since 2016.
