Thank you for stopping by to check out Blazin in Beauly 2017! This year is extra special for us as we launch our 9th album.
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!
Shetland fiddler, Ross Couper - formidable fiddler and member of The PeatBog Faeries and one half of duo 'Ross and Tom'.
Perth fiddler, Patsy Reid - known for her elegance and incredible string arranging, Patsy has played with many artists including Eliza Carthy, Duncan Chisholm.
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.
Michelle Burke and James Ross will join us for the Monday night concert in the Phipps Hall.
The stunning harmony singing of The Mae Trio will take to the stage on Wednesday night alongside the duo of Ross Couper and Tom Oakes.
A Blazin' Finale will close the week on the Friday evening, members of Blazin' Fiddles will host the evening, and we'll enjoy music from Patsy Reid, Iain MacFarlane, before we close in style with a cracking dance from the fantastic Scone Fairies Ceilidh Band
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!
Each year we take on the task of composing a tune for the Friday night auction, each one being named by the winning bid – all proceeds go to making Blazin in Beauly even better!
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank our long standing friends, Donald Fraser at Morison's Iron Mongers, Jackie and the team at the Corner on the Square.
