FEATURING

Recital 1  12 noon - YOUTH - Gizzenbriggs

Gizzen Briggs are a traditional music group from Tain Royal Academy, encouraging participation in traditional music and celebrating their 25th year. Rehearsing every week, they regularly perform at local ceilidhs and charity events and were awarded Community Project of the Year at the 2013 Scots Trad Awards. The group have produced six CDs and travelled and toured to perform in Montana, Amsterdam and Orkney. They also played at the official opening reception of the new Scottish Parliament, performing in front of the Queen.

Recital 2  1pm - Marie Fielding

Born in Edinburgh, Marie Fielding is Fiddle, Cello and Performance Lecturer at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Marie is best known for her contributions to the Scottish Dance Band scene and appears regularly on BBC Radio Scotlands Take The Floor. Marie is also an established composer and is delighted to be launching Book 3 of her tunes at the Scottish Fiddle Festival. As well as being a nominee for Best Composer at Na Trads, Maries self-produced album An Tra was up for Album of The Year.
This weekend will feature new compositions as well as other repertoire and Marie is delighted to be joined by 3 times Scottish champion accordionist and virtuoso band leader Tom Orr. Alongside them will be mighty guitarist and vocalist Luc McNally, who has established a name for himself around Glasgow and beyond as one of the leading musicians in the Trad scene, being nominated as a finalist in the Young Traditional Musician of The Year 2018. The Marie Fielding Trio show at Celtic Connections 2019 was a sell out and the trio are really looking forward to performing at the Scots Fiddle Festival this year.

Recital 3  2pm - Charlie Stewart will perform with pianist Fergus McCreadie

Individuality, marvelous tone, a wonderful range of attack and expression and all round musicality'- The Herald

Charlie moved to his current home of Glasgow to study Jazz Bass and Traditional Fiddle at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He gained the title of Young Traditional Musician of the year 2017, as well as a Danny Kyle award playing alongside Ross Miller and has reached the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards in 2016 playing with the harpist Becky Hill. Charlie can be found regularly performing with the bands Dosca, Sketch and Snuffbox as well as other projects at home and abroad. He will be accompanied by Fergus McCreadie who has been awarded the Best Instrumentalist Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards aged only 20, and is one of Scotlands most exciting young artists. For the past 4 years, he has been a mainstay of the Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife, Aberdeen and Islay Jazz Festivals. His debut album with his trio, Turas, has been praised for reflecting his engagement with the Scottish landscape and musical tradition while also showing a firm grasp of the Jazz Piano tradition.  

Recital 4  3pm - Farrland

Bernadette Kellermann (fiddle), Calum Morrison (guitar) and David Shedden (whistles) make up Farrland, a Glasgow based trio performing original and innovative compositions.  Formed in 2017, they combine their various musical backgrounds to create a unique contemporary sound, rooted in traditional music. Brought together through their shared love of composition, they perform entirely original material and take most of their inspiration from Scottish and Irish folk music, traditional piping, classical music and jazz.

Recital 5  4pm - Madeleine Stewart Trio

The trio is fronted by Madeleine Stewart on fiddle, whose playing is rooted in the rhythmical contra dance music of New England and moulded in the melting pot of traditional music in Glasgow. She is backed by Rory Matheson on piano and Craig Baxter on bodhran, who all met whilst studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. They play a range of music including new compositions by Madeleine and old classic tunes. With Rorys jazz, blues and dance band influences and Craigs driving bodhran, they create a huge sound that belies their small line-up.
