12 noon : The Kiltearn Fiddlers
Award winning Kiltearn Fiddlers emerged from advanced fiddle classes organised in Kiltearn Primary School in Evanton as part of Fèis Roiss weekly class programme. Alpha Munro formed the performance group which has helped young fiddlers develop technique, repertoire, creativity and performing experience. Kiltearn Fiddlers have performed at festivals across the UK including Blas Festival and Celtic Connections and internationally in Brittany, Denmark and Sweden. Over the years, Kiltearn Fiddlers have recorded four acclaimed albums.
1 pm : Gregor Borland
Greg started fiddle lessons early with Donald Riddell before going on to study with Hector MacAndrew. Both teachers greatly influenced his great love of Highland pipe marches and stirring
strathspeys. He later lived in Edinburgh and during that time played and recorded with many great artists including Kathryn
Tickell, Davy Steele and Bùrach. He has toured the UK extensively and as far afield as Australia. Accompanying him on the melodeon is Julian Sutton, no stranger to classical, jazz and brass collaborations, but firmly rooted in traditional folk music.
2 pm: Jamie Laval
American Jamie Laval is well-known to Scottish audiences from previous SFF appearances and many UK tours. His masterful command of the fiddle enables him to perform traditional Celtic music with unrivalled pathos and virtuosity. His uncanny bagpipe-style ornamentation, and fresh reinterpretation of Highland and Breton music, is lauded by aficionados of traditional music. Jamie has given a private performance
for The Queen and performed on Dave Matthews platinum Some Devil album. Jamies current album Murmurs and Drones won the popular vote for Best World Traditional Album.
3 pm: Alistair McCulloch
Alistair is delighted to return to the Festival. As well as tutoring at the Royal Conservatoire, he tours all over the world. His Trio, featuring Aaron Jones and Marc Duff, recently released a new album, Off the Hook, and have toured extensively in Scotland in 2018. He is also a member of the long established ceilidh band Coila. The Alistair McCulloch Collection tunebooks are popular learning resources and, as an inspirational teacher, Alistair been invited to tutor in North Carolina, Boston, New Zealand, and the Adult Feis in Ullapool.
