One of the world’s most prolific fiddle groups, Blazin’ Fiddles are multiple winners of Scotland’s Folk Band of the Year – most recently in 2019.  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 guitar and keyboard accompaniment from Anna Massie and Angus Lyon. 

Encompassing a rare and virtuosic selection of the fiddle’s diverse Highland and island voices, the Blazers pack all the power, passion and sensitivity of Scotland’s traditional music into a single show.

The band's passion is gloriously infectious... a much-loved staple on the Scots traditional scene for the past 20 years" Songlines
