Fiddlers’ Rally

If you’ve a hankering for taking to the stage, but don’t fancy the spotlight of the Open Stage, the Fiddlers’ Rally on Sunday afternoon may well be for you. Hosted by the West Mainland Strathspey and Reel Society, the ‘Rally brings together musicians from throughout Orkney and further afield, for massed performances of traditional tunes.

It is open to all who want to participate – not just fiddlers – and is quite a spectacle to behold, and be part of. If you fancy giving it a go, download the sheet music (it’s a large file, so bear with it) to up pick the tunes, head along to the Stromness Academy on Sunday for a rehearsal before the 2pm concert, and that’s you set.
