29th June 2013

Take a group of the hottest contemporary fiddle players from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and you’ve got the award winning Blazin’ Fiddles on your hands. In the past decade no other band has quite captured the excitement, passion and the sensitivity of Scottish music as Blazin’ Fiddles.

Having grown from a showcase tour of individual fiddlers highlighting the distinctive flavours of Highlands and Islands fiddle music.

During a performance, the audience has the 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.

European festival appearances have included The Cambridge Folk Festival, The Sidmouth International Music Festival, Lorient, Tønder Festival, the Falun Festival, Festival Internacional do Mundo Celta de Ortigueira and Scotland’s premier event Celtic Connections.

Past performances have included their own project With Strings Attached debuted at Celtic Connections 05 featuring singer songwriters Eddi Reader, Justin Currie (Del Amitri) and Colin MacIntyre (Mull Historical Society). In 2005 they made a welcomed return to Cambridge Folk Festival and also played the BBC Proms
at the Royal Albert Hall following the release of their last album ‘Magnificent Seven’ which picked up the Best Album Award at the Scots Trad Awards 2005. The band released their fourth album, Blazin’ Fiddles Live, in lead up to their 10th year anniversary in 2008.

The band released their fifth and latest studio album, Thursday Night in the Caley, in 2011.

Like rare single malts, each member of Blazin’ Fiddles draws the distinct flavour of music from their part of the highlands and islands. From solo to ensemble sets, they all come together in a fiery blend that raises the roof. Fiddlers Jenna Reid, Bruce Macgregor, Allan Henderson and Iain Macfarlane are joined by Anna Massie on guitar/fiddle and Angus Lyon on keyboard to form one of the best live acts today.
