As well as taking a lead position in these projects Innes is one of the most frequently utilised accompanists in Scotland. He has recently worked with the BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year finalists, the TMSA Young Trad. Tour, Daniel Thorpe, Maeve MacKinnon, Fiona MacCaskail and Gillian Frame and many many more.
