Born in Glasgow, Ryan Corbett is a classical accordionist who has been described as ‘one of Scotland’s most exciting young musicians’ (The Scotsman). This year he graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where he will commence his postgraduate studies after summer. Previously, he studied at the Music School of Douglas Academy and St Mary’s Music School. Ryan began playing accordion aged eleven and was self-taught until he started learning with Djordje Gajic at the age of fourteen. His repertoire ranges from Baroque keyboard works, to original contemporary compositions for accordion.

Ryan was awarded the Keyboard Prize, first prize and Gold Medal at the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition, first prize at the Bromsgrove International Musicians’ competition and prizes at international accordion competitions in Italy, Germany, and China. Ryan is a Tillet Debut scheme artist, Munster Trust Recital Scheme artist and the first accordionist to be part of the prestigious BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist scheme since its launch in 1999.

Ryan will be performing two concerts at Norfolk & Norwich Festival, this concert at Sheringham Little Theatre, and another at Octagon Chapel.
