HARROGATE Theatre is delighted to welcome the award-winning and highly acclaimed Blazin’ Fiddles, one of the hottest contemporary fiddle groups from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

Appearing live next Monday at 7.30pm, the band has been acclaimed for capturing the excitement, passion and the sensitivity of Scottish music.

The band grew 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.

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

In 2005 they made a welcomed return to Cambridge Folk Festival and alsoplayed 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.
