Ali and the rest of Grouse Ceilidh Band are excited to have been asked to play at the Scots Fiddle Festival's Ceilidh on Friday, November 20 and, by playing at the Ceilidh, they will be helping to raise money for Barnardo's.
In addition at 12:30pm on Sunday, November 22, Mairi Thérèse Gilfedder, Grouse Ceilidh Band's Fiddler, will be presenting a talk at the Festival on, "Mediating Between the Past and Present Changing Faces of the West Coast Fiddle Tradition in Scotland".
From South Uist, Mairi Thérèse was surrounded by traditional music from a young age. Her talk is based on stylistic aspects of the West Coast fiddle tradition and the changes that have taken place in recent years, drawing from correspondence with Angus Grant as well as the experience of a younger generation of fiddle players.
