San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers

San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers – Tuesday, July 30 (5-6:30 pm) 

The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers was formed in 1986 when renowned fiddler Alasdair Fraser placed an advertisement in a local newspaper looking for people interested in sharing Scottish fiddle music. A small group of enthusiasts quickly gathered which in the years since has grown to over 250 members. Most live in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, but there are members from all over California and beyond, even some overseas.  Local Coeur d’Alene musicians will be performing with the SFSF in several locations in town this same week. 

A wee bit about Alasdair Fraser:  Alasdair Fraser is one of the greatest carriers of the Scottish fiddle music tradition, a fiddler whose warmly expressive playing, mastery of his instrument and deep understanding of his native music as a venerable and continually evolving art is an inspiration to generations of musicians on both sides of the Atlantic.
