Categories:

Date: 
Sunday, 25 February 2018

This is the most important date in every London fiddler's calendar; a chance to meet friends,

learn new tunes, see some amazing playing, buy some fiddle stuff. People come from all over

the South East to be there- you'll rarely meet so many fiddlers in one place!

As usual there will be a series of afternoon workshops, a fiddle contest, session in the bar, and

an evening concert featuring a wide range of performers.

And YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A FIDDLE PLAYER! The concert is open to everyone and you're guaranteed a welcoming

and friendly atmosphere, and a great set of performances.

Guests this year include

  • Iain Fraser (Scottish/Canadian)
  • Jock Tyldesley (Cajun/Old Time)
  • Tom Moore (English)
  • Dr Chan Dacan (Chinese Erhu)
  • Gundula Gruen (Balkan)
  • Pete Cooper (English/Old time)
  • Chris Haigh (bluegrass)
