Dynamic Highlands Band Blazin\’ Fiddles To Play The Met

The Met presents the hottest contemporary fiddle players, Blazin\’ Fiddles on Thursday 23 June at 8pm.

In the past decade no other band has quite captured the excitement, passion and the sensitivity of Scottish music as Blazin\’ Fiddles. Having grown from a showcase tour of individual fiddlers highlighting the distinctive flavours of Highlands and Islands fiddle music, the Blazers have now been together for nine years developing a healthy world-wide following.

During a performance, the audience has the opportunity to hear pieces featuring the regional styles of each fiddler followed by all hands jumping in for a wonderful explosion of music. Fiddles and bows blaze away with guitar and piano for one of the most exciting and memorable fiddle ensembles ever to take the stage.

Like rare single malts, each member of Blazin\’Fiddles draws the distinct flavour of music from their part of the highlands and islands. From solo to ensemble sets, they all come together in a fiery blend that raises the roof. Fiddlers Jenna Reid, Bruce Macgregor, Allan Henderson and Iain Macfarlane are joined by Anna Massie on guitar/fiddle and Andy Thorburn on keyboard to form one of the best live acts today.

Tickets for the show are £16, £14 concession and the show starts at 8pm. Guarantee your place by calling the ticket office now on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
