Mike Vass - Centre Manager

Originally from Nairn, Mike Vass is one of the most creative forces on the Scottish music scene. As a musician, composer, producer and arranger, Vass has amassed a body of work that encompasses early appearances as a livewire young fiddler, collaborations with many of the leading voices among today’s Scots and Gaelic tradition bearers, delivering multi-media performances, overseeing critically acclaimed recordings, and scoring for prestigious ensembles.

Rhona Sharp - Administration Assistant

Rhona joined the Centre staff full-time in August 2010. Her background includes working for Scottish Opera, initially in Press and Publicity, then later in a second stint in fundraising and sponsorship, organising corporate events. She was involved in the early stages of development of the globally renowned Tramway in the South Side of Glasgow, a cutting-edge venue that showcases contemporary visual and performing art. Rhona was central to the development of Tramway's education programme.
