The CD features many of the guest musicians from Scotland's great fiddle extravaganza Fiddle 2000, the biggest celebration of Scots fiddle anywhere in the world. This amazing annual festival which takes place at the end of November in The Assembly Rooms, George Street Edinburgh is run by volunteers and hosts over forty separate events ranging from recitals, workshops and master classes, to concerts, ceilidhs, youth events and open stage.
Listen and marvel at the fabulous musicianship and sheer brilliance of celtic fiddlers Jennifer Wrigley, John McCusker, Liz Doherty, Aidan O'Rourke, Clare McLaughlin, Claire Mann, Simon Bradley, Eilidh Shaw, Kenny Fraser, Anna-Wendy Stevenson, Gillian Boucher, Russell Hunter, Marianne Campbell, Maeve and Orna Gilchrist, Derek and Sarah Hoy and Sarah McFadyen.
One of the fine things about this CD is that it features not only professional musicians but also some of Scotland’s up and coming musicians. There’s great performances here from Sarah Hoy (16) who plays a couple of her own compositions and Orna and Maeve Gilchrist (15) a duo of fiddle and clarsach. When you listen to these tracks you tracks you will be pleasantly surprised at the high standard of the young musicians that we have in Scotland.
