People of all ages can enjoy infectious jigs and spins and poignant slow tunes, as well as a fine selection of well-known songs at the seated concert.

Bob Diament, Chairman of the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra, said: “We are delighted to be able to return to the Edinburgh and Glasgow stages this summer. Our musicians thrive when they can feel the energy of a live audience, and the people who attend our shows are as enthusiastic and engaged as ever. We know so many people missed coming together to watch us play and so we look forward to playing these two special concerts for audiences old and new this summer.

Run solely by volunteers, the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra is a fully autonomous charity. The orchestra makes donations to other music-related charities, partner pipers, medical charities and the RNLI. This year they donated to Drake Music Scotland, Gig Buddies, Sistema Scotland and The Gaiety Theater Ayr.
