Who would have thought that what began as a project for the Highland Festival, 10 years ago, would continue as one of Scotland's top traditional bands? From remote village halls to the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, Blazin' Fiddles has delighted audiences with their highlands and islands tunes and tales. In the past decade no other band has quite captured the excitement, passion and the sensitivity of Scottish music.
During a performance, the audience has a rare opportunity to hear pieces featuring the regional styles of each fiddler followed by all hands jumping in for a wonderful explosion of music. Fiddles and bows blaze away with guitar and piano for one of the most exciting and memorable fiddle ensembles ever to take the stage.
Blazin’ Fiddles are Allan Henderson – fiddle, Iain Macfarlane – fiddle, Catriona Macdonald – fiddle, Bruce MacGregor – fiddle, Anna Massie – guitar, fiddle, Andy Thorburn – piano.
