Fiddlers’ Rally

A staple of the Orkney Folk Festival programme since our very first, in 1983, the Fiddlers’ Rally brings together a great number of musicians from throughout Orkney and further afield, for massed performances of traditional tunes.

Hosted by the West Mainland Strathspey and Reel Society, the Rally is open to all who want to participate (not just fiddlers) from an intermediate level upwards, and is a very popular event, for both participants and audiences.

If you fancy taking part, download the 2023 sheet music here, head along to a rehearsal in Stromness Academy at 11.30am on Sunday 29 May (ahead of the Rally that afternoon) and you’re all set!
