After an absence of two years Scotland’s National Fiddle Orchestra makes a welcome return to Sage Gateshead.
Conductor Blair Parham brings to Gateshead a fresh programme of all that is best in Scottish music, played with the verve and enthusiasm which puts The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra in a class of its own.
Don’t miss the concourse dance display at 6.30pm!
All your old friends will be there – pipers, dancers and singers, along with the unmissable playing of principal soloist Yla Steven.
This visit brings with it a compère making his first SFO visit to Sage Gateshead – Robert Lovie. Rising fast in the ranks of Scottish entertainment Robert brings a deft touch to the proceedings with his chirpy sense of humour and a great skill in reciting humorous verse. He has already established himself as a firm favourite with SFO audiences.
All in all the evening is awash with humour, talent and great music, or in other words a typical Scottish Fiddle Orchestra performance and one definitely for the connoisseur.
Some of the biggest names in music visit the banks of the Tyne this May and June while we also have innovative talks and performances as part of Thinking Digital Arts 2017 & Hexham Gathering returns.
Sage Gateshead showcases a strong line-up of folk, roots and blues artists from both sides of the Atlantic.
