Aidan Scrimgeour is a musician, composer and educator from Salem, MA based in Brooklyn, NY. He studied piano performance in the Contemporary Improvisation department at New England Conservatory and has a B.A. in Performance & Representation from Tufts University.
In 2020, along with Roy Nathanson of the Jazz Passengers, he co-founded the 5pm Porch Music Program, an educational and performance collective that emerged from their daily ritualistic concerts throughout the early months of the pandemic. This program provides free music lessons, ensembles and writing workshops for teens in South Brooklyn communities.
Aidan’s wide range of musical interests stretches from jazz to various folk musics to musical theater. He has been a regular performer at Jalopy with the Slide Stops and Lissy & the Jacks. He was the accordionist and songwriter for Pumpkin Bread, a Boston-based new acoustic band, which has been featured on "A Celtic Sojourn" on WGBH and Brian O’Donavan’s backroom series. He was the composer and musical director for the original musical Only Human, which premiered at Ames Hall in Salem. He is currently working on several musical projects in which he hopes to celebrate the beauty of and bridge the gaps between various forms of traditional music.
Aidan has been performing the music of Vince Guaraldi since 2017. His trio has performed throughout the Northeast at venues including Distler Hall, Merrimack College, and the Parish Center for the Arts.
