Hilary de Vries

Composer & Songwriter

I’m a Scottish composer and songwriter whose work is greatly influenced and inspired by the Scottish landscape, people and birdsong, especially that of the Highlands where I live, but also from the wider world. I write both solo and in collaboration with others, as well as publishing collections of my work. A book of my pipe tunes ‘The Barley Skimmers’ is due to be released in autumn 2017.

This website presents a small selection of my music, projects and inspirations.
