Fiddlers rally at Haddo House

HADDO House will be the venue on Saturday (May 12) for the Ythan Fiddlers Rally, when musicians from across Scotland will gather to share and enjoy traditional music.

More than 70 players are expected with a guest appearance from one of Shetland’s foremost fiddle players, Bryan Gear.

The Ythan Fiddlers is a charity based in Ellon with more than 50 members whose ages range from six to 60.

They return to Haddo house for an evening of entertainment, which will attract some top musicians.

Top of the bill, Bryan Gear, is generally recognised as one of Scotland’s finest fiddle players, and although still a joiner by trade has travelled extensively.

Violet Tulloch will be again providing accompaniment, although she too has a fine solo reputation.

Host for the evening is the traditional Scottish comedian, Eddie Rose.

Haddo House, a National Trust for Scotland property, has a tradition of top music and drama events.
