Fiddle Concert


16:30–18:00
Glenbuchat Hall, Glenbuchat
£10/£5 (under 16s)

Glenbuchat’s recently renovated village hall, fast gaining a reputation as a red-hot ceilidh spot, sees the cream of North-East Scotland’s fiddle talent
come out, with Paul Anderson, Sharon Hassan and Jonny Hardie linking up for a day of workshops, walks and an early-evening concert celebrating
the tunes and life of 19th century fiddle player and composer, Alexander Walker, and his contemporaries. Our Nova Scotian guest artists will bring an
international flavour to the event, joining the home and music of Walker’s later-life, with the landscape and traditions of his youth.
