Fiddlers Bid Vs Blazin Fiddles - Fiddles on Fire
An absolutely storming way to launch Fiddles on Fire – with a ‘fiddle off’ between two bands brimming with talent, charisma and fun. Both bands include musicians who pull sell-out crowds in their own right, including Catriona Macdonald, Aidan O’Rourke, Chris Stout and Catriona McKay. Blazin’ Fiddles keeps alive the musical traditions from all the parts of Scotland that the band members are from: they play solo spots showcasing the regional styles and individuals talents, and join together for barn-storming numbers.
Fiddlers’ Bid champions the strong musical heritage of Shetland, taking their music round the globe. A dynamic four fiddle front line is joined by piano, bass, guitar and Scottish harp.
Both bands have the ability to shake the very fabric of the venues they play in with their fiddling gusto, but also reduce a rapt audience to breathless hush with their quiet numbers. Together, they are not to be missed! “The all-instrumental powerhouse that is Blazin’ Fiddles presented thoroughly exhilarating shows.” The Independent
“There’s nothing like Fiddlers’ Bid in full flight - you should take every opportunity you get to see them live.” BBC
