Blazin' Fiddles *

21st November 2016

Blazin’ Fiddles are undoubtedly one of the world’s most prolific fiddle groups. Over the last 17 years, no other band has quite managed to capture the excitement, passion and sensitivity of Scottish music all at once.

With a Blazers performance comes the rare opportunity to hear the regional expressions, from Scotland’s Highlands and islands, and the individual style from each fiddler – Inverness’ Bruce MacGregor, Shetlander Jenna Reid, Nairn’s Rua Macmillan, and Orcadian Kristan Harvey – in a blend of ensemble and solo sets. Fiddles and bows come alight atop guitar and piano from Anna Massie and Angus Lyon, delivering a musically intoxicating evening for all.

Whatever the hall – be it in a Highland village or London’s Royal Albert – this legendary, multi award-winning act never fails to set the hearts of their audiences alight.

Support: Bernard Hoskin
An experienced singer / songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has released 9 cds and opened for many of the big names on the folk scene. He previously played for Colchester Folk Club as a member of Pavlov's Cat. A recent review of a live performance wrote: "Bernard performs songs with the unhurried, slightly wistful, airy, summery feel of classic 60s folk singer-songwriters, creating a reflective, gentle and fundamentally positive space, which it was a treat to inhabit during his deservedly well-received set."
