Since 2001, Blazin’ Fiddles have hosted a wonderful week of tuition, concerts, ceilidhs and craic, welcoming thousands of folk to the little town of Beauly in the Highlands of Scotland.
A short drive from Inverness, Beauly is a gem of a place, a truly welcoming town where everyone is part of the community.
The classes take place all over the town; The Phipps Hall, Morison’s Iron Mongers, The Caley Hotel, The British Legion and of course
The Lovat Hotel – Blazers head quarters for the week and also home to fiddles, guitar and piano classes, delivered by none other than team Blazin’ Fiddles and our fabulous guest tutors!
Alasdair Fraser – Alasdair is recognised throughout the world as on of the finest fiddle players Scotland has ever produced. His name is synonymous with the the vibrant cultural renaissance which is transforming the Scottish musical scene. Scot’s Magazine
Natalie Haas – In the hands of Natalie Haas, the cello becomes a truly. Agical instrument. Green Man
Rick Taylor joins us as our group work leader. Rick is an incredible musician from the Isle of Skye and we are over the moon to have him with us, a key member of our team and truly part of the Blazin’ in Beauly.
Our live concerts are a huge part of the week and bring everyone together for a much needed night of enjoying some of the most fantastic musicians and singers.
The Lovat Hotel is a great place for session and an afternoon cup of tea – or whatever takes your fancy.
The local Deli on the Square is a high point of each day – delicious lunches!
Of course there are many more shops and food outlets that will keep you more than satisfied!
