Royal visitor for Scottish Fiddle Orchestra’s concert

Scottish Fiddle Orchestra
Scottish Fiddle Orchestra

It’s sure to be a concert with a difference as HRH the Princess Royal, patron of the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra turns up to take her seat!

The Princess Royal became Patron in 1993, and has seen the orchestra rise to become Scotland’s “National” fiddle orchestra, playing to enthusiastic fans all over the UK and beyond.

September sees their return to the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for another evening of magic, when they play slow airs, haunting tone poems and fast and furious reels with a skill and passion that has become the benchmark for traditional Scottish music.

Performing with the orchestra are two of Scotland’s finest singers, mezzo-soprano Debra Stuart, and tenor James Nicol.

These two artistes have been associated with the orchestra for many years.

The orchestra is also delighted to be playing again with 1st Troon Boys’ Brigade Pipe Band. Listen out for their special sound when they join with the orchestra in the ever popular “Highland Cathedral”.

Once again SFO piper, Jamie Westhead will be on hand to fulfil the solo piping duties throughout the evening.

The orchestra is delighted to be supporting their charity partner the STV Children’s Appeal with this concert.
