One of the world’s most prolific fiddle groups,Blazin’ Fiddlesformed for a one-off tour of the Scottish Highlands in 1999 and are stillraising roofs far and wide well over two decades later.

Encompassing a rare and virtuosic selection of the fiddle’s diverse Highland and island voices, with ensemble and solo-led sets both backed by powerhouse guitar and piano, the Blazers pack all the power, passion and sensitivity of Scotland’s traditional music, into a single show.

Multiple winners of Scotland’s Folk Band of the Year – most recently in 2023 – the six-piece have long been one of country’s foremost and most recognisable folk groups, touring far beyond their deep northern roots.
