Scotland’s most celebrated fiddle band Blazin’ Fiddles will join together with the remarkable vocalist Karen Matheson for a special one-off Scottish tour which begins at The Queen’s Hall.

Each member of Blazin’ Fiddles draws the distinct flavour of music from their part of the Highlands and Islands. Blending solo and ensemble sets, aged with the occasional insightful tale, they come together in a fiery blend to excite your senses. From remote village halls to the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, fiddlers Jenna Reid, Bruce MacGregor, Rua Macmillan and Kristan Harvey are joined by Anna Massie on guitar/fiddle and Angus Lyon on piano to deliver a musically intoxicating evening for all.

Karen Matheson has enjoyed a stellar career with Capercaillie who have sold more than a million albums, performed in over thirty countries and written and starred in the blockbuster movie 'Rob Roy', with Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange, in which Karen performed a solo rendition of a Gaelic lament.

As a solo performer, Karen has been involved in various projects of collaboration worldwide including the award winning BBC series Transatlantic Sessions, where over the last decade she has filmed tracks with artists like James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, The McGarrigle Sisters, Nanci Griffith, and a host of respected Scottish musicians. She has produced four acclaimed solo albums – The Dreaming Sea, Time to Fall, Downriver, and most recently Urram, with a collection of timeless Gaelic songs that evoke the character and atmosphere of Island life.
