FIDDLING

The fiddle tradition in Scotland is just as rich as that of the pipes and drums, yet it is relatively unknown on this side of the world. The various regional styles gather strands from the music of the bagpipes, Gaelic song, ancient Norse conquerors, Irish travellers, the ballrooms of wealthy patrons, humble village Ceilidhs and weave them all into a distinctive Scottish sound. Each year we are privileged to have world-recognised fiddle players from Scotland Australia and Nova Scotia to not only judge our players, but also mentor and encourage them.

We are renowned for having a highly competitive Heavy Weight championship field with competitors coming from all around New Zealand and off-shore to challenge themselves against the best, requiring excellent timing, balance and technique and looking so much more impressive wearing a kilt!
