Fiddlers Welcome the Baton!

On Sunday 13th July, at around twenty minutes after noon,

a group of fiddlers from the Workshop

took to the stage at Strachur Memorial Village Hall. They were part of a great day of family fun arranged to welcome the Queen’s Baton on its way around Scotland. The fiddlers, all various abilities, had been practising on Wednesday evenings over the summer and this was a great chance to put on a performance to highlight what they had achieved. 

The weather was absolutely perfect for the day and we had a very enjoyable time in our twenty minute spot, entertaining an appreciative audience with a variety of well-known and even lesser-known tunes. The work we had done on creating sets of tunes rather than playing tunes individually had paid off and we managed to put together some very fluently-linked sets!  The fact that our tutor, Siobhan Anderson, made a big effort to join us on the day was a great boost to all the players, and our sincere thanks to Siobhan for making the journey.
