Blazin' Fiddles

16 August 2023

Easily amongst Scotland’s most renowned and celebrated folk groups, BlazinFiddles formed for a one-off tour of the Scottish Highlands in 1999, and are still raising roofs far and wide in their 25th year on the road.

Multiple winners of Scotland’s Folk Band of the Year, the six-piece have long been one of country’s foremost and most recognisable traditional ensembles, touring far beyond their deep northern roots.

 Encompassing a rare and virtuosic selection of the fiddle’s diverse Highland and island voices, in their 25 years the Blazers have undoubtedly become one of the world’s most prolific fiddle ensembles. With ensemble and solo-led sets both backed by powerhouse guitar and piano, the band’s four-fiddle frontline of Inverness’ Bruce MacGregor, Shetlander Jenna Reid, Nairn’s Rua Macmillan, and Orkney’s Kristan Harvey ignites atop second-to-none accompaniment from Anna Massie and Angus Lyon. Like rare single malts, each member draws upon the distinct musical flavours from their rich traditional heritages, collectively packing all the power, passion and sensitivity of Scotland’s music, into a single show.

 Blazin’ Fiddles celebrate their quarter-century on the road in 2023, with the hotly-anticipated release of their tenth album. Whatever the hall – whether of the Highland village or Royal Albert variety – they’ll turn it into the liveliest and warmest of hootenannies, setting the hearts of their audience alight.

 "the band's passion is gloriously infectious... a much loved staple on the Scots traditional scene for the past 20 years" / Songlines

 "an ensemble of class and distinction" / Fatea

 "infectious, enlivening and irresistible euphoria" / Folk Radio UK

 "Music like this is a reminder why Hogmanay celebrations are such fun." / London Evening Standard

"bursting with joie de vivre and personality" / Songlines

 "the Led Zeppelin of the folk world" / The Scotsman

Such lovely memories of coming to Birnam as a wee one, visiting the garden and the exhibition then exploring the woods that inspired Beatrix Potter.
