Scottish Fiddle Orchestra
30 Glorious Years
[RECD574] - 5 in Stock
The year 2010 celebrates the 30th anniversary of The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra. Neil Ross, our recording expert at REL Records, Edinburgh, suggested that it would be appropriate to bring out a 3 set CD package to commemorate the event, each CD to be drawn from our recordings over each of the 10 years since 1980. Neil asked if I would prepare a commentary for each of the CDs highlighting items of interest for each period. The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra evolved from the popular "Fiddlers' Rallies" of the 1970s. Although discussions had taken place during the late 1970s the Orchestra really only took to the stage in the Music Hall, Aberdeen on 22nd March, 1980. This inaugural concert was kindly supported by Aberdeen City Council and was recorded by Neil Ross for an LP "A Toast to Bon Accord"....
