Fans of traditional fiddle music will be thrilled by the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra which takes to the stage in Dundee’s Caird Hall on Saturday, October 25.

All the orchestra’s established stars will be on show including Colette Ruddy, one of Scotland’s finest mezzo sopranos along with renowned tenor Dennis Haggerty.

Both are as much at home with a bothy ballad as they are with opera, and their humour and delivery are loved by audiences all over the country.

Pipe music enthusiasts will be royally entertained by the Edradour, Blair Atholl and Pitlochry Pipe Band, especially when, in tandem with the SFO and the mighty Caird Hall organ, they deliver their famous performance of ‘Highland Cathedral’, guaranteed to lift the hairs on the back of your neck!

Fiddling will be fast and furious, slow and haunting – just what audiences have come to expect from this marvellous orchestra, and when you add to the mix the twinkling feet of the dancing Clark sisters you have an evening not to be missed.

Under the baton of brilliant young conductor Blair Parham, and hosted by Jim McColl, the evening promises to be unforgettable.

Tickets costing £18 or £5 for under 16s are available from Dundee Box Office by telephoning 01382 434940 or from the box office website at www.dundeebox.co.uk
