Blazin’ Fiddles are undoubtedly one of the world’s most prolific fiddle groups. Over the last 17 years, no other band has quite managed to capture the excitement, passion and sensitivity of Scottish music all at once.
“Bursting with joie de vivre and personality.” Songlines
“The Led Zeppelin of the folk world.” The Scotsman
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.
“An ensemble of class and distinction.” Fatea
“Absolutely mind-blowing.” Mike Harding
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.
“Infectious, enlivening and irresistible euphoria.” Folk Radio UK
“Music like this is a reminder why Hogmanay celebrations are such fun.” London Evening Standard (four stars)
