The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra draws its inspiration from all regions of Scotland. With up to 130 players often on stage, their arrangements of traditional fiddle music - reels, jigs, strathspeys and hornpipes - have audiences dancing in the aisles.

The tradition of fiddler's rallies goes back centuries. It is this tradition that is proudly carried forward by the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra.
