Craig Armstrong b. 29/04/1959

Artists | Classical | Composers and Arrangers

Craig Armstrong's music is as varied as it is successful. Born in 1959 in the east end of Glasgow, the musician and composer headed to London in 1977 to train at the Royal Academy of Music. Under the tutelage of such greats as Cornelius Cardew and Malcolm MacDonald, he developed an approach that evokes the most delicate shifts in atmosphere and emotion.

On his return to Glasgow, Armstrong became in-house composer at the influential Tron Theatre, working for the first time with director Michael Boyd (now at the Royal Shakespeare Company). It was also at the Tron that Armstrong met actor/ director Peter Mullan, whose films (including The Magdalene Sisters and Neds) he continues to provide the music for today.
