ONE of the world's most prolific fiddle groups headline in Ulverston this month for the latest Furness Tradition concert.

The internationally-renowned Scottish outfit appear at the Coronation Hall on Friday November 24, promoting their brand-new album.

Celebrating their 20th year in 2018, they are building up to the anniversary with the release of their ninth album, The Key, this month, as well as the supporting UK tour.

Comprising some of the hottest young contemporary fiddle players, all from various regions of the highlands and islands of Scotland, the award-winning band have delighted audiences with their unique style of music.

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.

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 band embody the spirit of today’s Highland fiddle music, which has achieved them a world-wide following having performed in Canada to the US, Europe to the Middle East, from remote village halls to the Royal Albert Hall.

The concert on Friday 24 starts at 8pm, and tickets are available from the Coronation Hall box office.
