Furness Tradition presents
Thursday 24 February, 7.30pm
Get ready for an evening of infectious, enlivening, and euphoric fiddle music from Blazin’ Fiddles, 'the Led Zeppelin of the folk world' (The Scotsman).
Encompassing a rare and virtuosic selection of the fiddle’s diverse Highland and island voices, with ensemble and solo-led sets both backed by powerhouse guitar and piano, the Blazers pack all the power, passion and sensitivity of Scotland’s traditional music, into a single show. But whatever the hall – whether of the Highland village or Royal Albert variety – they’ll turn it into the liveliest and warmest of hootenannies, setting the hearts of their audience alight.
One of the world’s most prolific fiddle groups, Blazin’ Fiddles formed for a one-off tour of the Scottish Highlands in 1999 and are still raising roofs far and wide well over two decades later. Multiple winners of Scotland’s Folk Band of the Year, the four-fiddle frontline of Inverness’ Bruce MacGregor, Shetlander Jenna Reid, Nairn’s Rua Macmillan, and Orkney’s Kristan Harvey ignites atop second-to-none accompaniment from Anna Massie and Angus Lyon.
A short note on safety
Your safety and comfort continues to be our top priority. Event capacities will be limited to maintain space in the auditorium, while all Coro staff and volunteers will continue to wear face coverings. Although no longer mandatory, we encourage all visitors to wear face coverings when indoors, keep a safe distance from others, use hand sanitisers and wash hands regularly, and check in with the NHS Test and Trace app if able to do so. We also reserve the right to make face coverings a mandatory condition of entry in future if we see fit, in which event bookers will be contacted.
'The band's passion is gloriously infectious... a much loved staple on the Scots traditional scene for the past 20 years.'
'Music like this is a reminder why Hogmanay celebrations are such fun.'
