The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers
Sun, April 30 @ 3:00 pm
The powerful sound of dozens of fiddlers backed by piano, drums and guitars is as lively as a dance band and as majestic as a symphony orchestra. In an exhilarating musical showcase, the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers led by Alasdair Fraser bring the rich and authentic music of the Scottish highlands to life. Honoring the tradition of playing by ear, they follow the spontaneous evolution of the melody wherever it leads. Sweetly lyrical or energetically rousing, their music is always irresistible.
“They don’t sound as brash as bagpipes, but the massed San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers are an experience not to be missed.” — San Francisco Chronicle
“The evening is probably a lot like what communities experienced before television and films displaced music as community glue.” — Santa Cruz County Sentinel
