SFO Northern Nights Tour – July 2018

Tour Poster for Scottish Fiddle Orchestra "Northern Nights" Tour - July 2018

Here’s an excerpt from the flyer for the Tour:

Northern Nights Tour

Scotland’s National Fiddle Orchestra last undertook a northern tour in 2010 and concerts in Elgin, Kirkwall and Lerwick promise to be an unforgettable experience as around eighty performers – including fiddlers, singers and pipers – take to the stage. Moray, Orkney and Shetland each have a wonderful fiddle music heritage, which we will highlight and celebrate.

Join us for a magical evening of Scottish music, ranging from lively, rhythmic toe-tapping jigs to reels and tone poems, well-known songs and moving slow airs. Sharing the stage with the massed ranks of the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra will be a pipe band, our ever-popular singers and talented local musicians uniting in a traditionally Scottish format and generating an incredibly powerful sound.

The Orchestra has earned standing ovations in concert venues as far afield as Australia, Canada, China and New Zealand. Don’t miss this chance to experience one of our performances in a more intimate setting.

An SFO concert is an ideal event for all ages and for group outings.

We promise to get you clapping, singing and laughing along during a night that you’ll be talking about for years to come!
