Neil Sutcliffe is a Scottish musician originally from Stirling, now based in Glasgow. His principal instrument is the accordion, on which he plays a variety of styles. In 2021 he completed his BMus Honours at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where he studied classical accordion with Djordje Gajic. 

Neil is passionate about promoting the classical accordion and its repertoire. As well as performing and teaching, he works with composers to introduce them to the instrument and encourage more contemporary compositions for the accordion. 

Neil also regularly performs as a traditional musician, both as a soloist and in various groups. Alongside a repertoire of tunes, he has inherited a love of folksong from his mother, Jo Miller, and sings in a variety of languages including Scots and Scottish Gaelic.

Collaboration with other artists is a key focus of Neil's work, and he regularly performs and composes with other musicians on various projects. Inter-disciplinary work includes shows with storytellers, dancers and BSL artists.
