Contemporary fiddlers blazing a trail to the Lakes
Last updated at 13:15, Thursday, 26 April 2012
ONE of the world’s greatest contemporary fiddle bands is set to play the Lakes tomorrow night.
Scotland’s award-winning Blazin’ Fiddles head to the Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, for a set of their own music and tales from the Highlands and islands.
Fiddles and bows blaze away with guitar and piano in a concert that offers a rare opportunity to hear pieces featuring the differing styles of each fiddler. From solo to ensemble sets, they all come together in a fiery blend that raises the roof.
Fiddlers Bruce Macgregor, Allan Henderson, Jenna Reid and Iain Macfarlane are joined by Anna Massie on guitar and Andy Thorburn on keyboard to form one of the best live acts in the genre.
They picked up the Live Band of the Year gong at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2004, and then the Album of the Year award for Magnificent Seven in 2005.
European festival appearances have included Cambridge Folk Festival, Sidmouth International Music Festival and Scotland’s premier event, Celtic Connections.
The show in Keswick starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the box office.
