Our annual Fiddlers’ Rally has been a cornerstone of the festival programme since our very first in 1983 – and this year is no exception!
For nearly four decades, the Fiddlers’ Rally has brought together a great many musicians from throughout Orkney and further afield, for massed performances of traditional tunes, led by the West Mainland Strathspey and Reel Society.
This year we are very excited to be hosting a virtual Fiddlers’ Rally, and invite musicians from anywhere in the world to join in!
We’ve recorded guide tracks to six sets of tunes – all you need to do is record yourself playing along to them by next Sunday (16 May), and we’ll piece them all together in one big virtual Rally, which will be shown during the Virtually Orkney Folk Festival weekend!
