Take part in the Fiddlers’ Rally!

If you fancy taking to the stage in this year’s Fiddlers’ Rally, held on Sunday 29 May in the Stromness Academy, you can now download a copy of this year’s sheet music to brush up on the tunes ahead.

Hosted by the West Mainland Strathspey and Reel Society, the Fiddlers’ Rally brings together a great number of musicians from throughout Orkney and further afield, for massed performances of traditional tunes.A staple of the Orkney Folk Festival programme since our very first, in 1983, the Rally – held annually, on the festival’s Sunday afternoon – is a very popular event, for both participants and audiences, and is quite a sight to behold!

It is open to all who want to participate (not just fiddlers) from an intermediate level or greater. If you fancy taking part, download a copy of the sheet music and have a look over, then head along to the Stromness Academy for a rehearsal on Sunday morning, and you’re set!
