"three divine voices" Edinburgh Evening News

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.

Thirty five of the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra's finest players have been hand picked for this celebration of Scottish music. Experience the exhilarating music and power of the massed fiddles in a programme that celebrates Scotland's proud musical heritage!
