The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc

Friday 28th Oct, 8:00 pm

Nordic Fiddlers Bloc low res'The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc' comprise three master fiddle players from three different and very distinctive Nordic regions. Kevin Henderson (Fiddlers' Bid, Boys of the Lough' and 'Session A9) hails from Shetland; Olav Luksengard Mjelva is an award winning fiddle player from Norway and Anders Hall is an acclaimed exponent of the Swedish fiddle tradition. Their combined playing skilfully weaves the many components of their three musical cultures and traditions together in a hugely atmospheric and dynamic fashion, all laced through with liberal helpings of humour for good measure.

"This trio are endlessly varied, powerful and beautiful…..a shimmering display of accurately pitched, highly skilled musical accomplishment" The Scotsman

FCRC Halloween Ceilidh

Saturday 29th Oct, 8:00 pm

BoatshedThe Findhorn Coastal Rowing Club proudly presents a Halloween Ceilidh featuring The Boatshed Band which was formed for a ceilidh to celebrate the launch of the new Findhorn rowing skiff last year. Since then, they have become a regular fixture on the local circuit, often playing to help raise money for a good cause, and as their reputation grows, their gigs invariably sell out. There are eight members — Adam Csenki and Carla Hornsby on fiddles, John Harris on mandola, Phoebe Csenki on keyboard, Ian Fleming on guitar, Jonathan Chuter on banjo, Dave Whitehead on percussion, and of course, their caller, Morag Robertson.
Doors open 7.30 p.m. Band on at 8 p.m.

Mairearad and Anna

Wednesday 9th Nov, 7:30 pm

Mairead & Anna credit Ricky FrewBased in Glasgow, Mairearad Green (accordion and bagpipes) and Anna Massie (guitar, banjo, fiddle) both grew up in the Scottish Highlands and so share an innate understanding of Scottish culture and music. As a duo they have enjoyed many successes, including five stars in The Scotsman and high praise from KT Tunstall, and their three albums have all met wide critical acclaim with Best Day their first album to feature songs. Expect the highest-order musicianship, with sets and songs intricately arranged and executed with a symbiotic sympathy.

"A superb instrumental duo" Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
