Contemporary fiddle band from the Highlands and Islands who've been called 'the Led Zeppelin of the folk world' and 'the U2 of their genre'.
Blazin’ Fiddles are one of the world’s most prolific fiddle groups. Celebrating their 21st year in 2019, 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.
