ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Founded in 1986 to play traditional Scottish fiddle music, the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers have grown to over 300 members from all over California, the U.S.A. and beyond. Varying widely in age, skill and background, the fiddlers are drawn together by a strong sense of community and fired by their love of Celtic traditional music.

Guided by our director, Alasdair Fraser, we draw repertoire from the rich and enduring Scottish musical tradition, learning contemporary tunes as well as those that have been passed down through the generations. Many tunes also come from the great fiddling traditions of Ireland, Cape Breton, Scandinavia, Quebec, Appalachia, and Spain.

Picture a stage filled with 75 fiddlers along with piano, drums, cellos, guitars, harps, and winds, projecting a sound as lively as a dance band, as majestic as a symphony orchestra. Image a group that creates such a two-way sense of fun and joy between the musicians and audience that people spontaneously get out of their seats and dance in the aisles, whether or not they know the steps to the jigs and reels pouring forth from the stage.

This album, recording during the 25th annual concert show, represents the group's favorite tunes from the past decade or so, plus many small ensembles and featured soloists presenting their personal approach to the music.

This album represents a live concert performance complete with audience participation, recorded on April 27th and 28th, 2012, at The Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, California.

SFSF is a volunteer-run organization which is part of the Scottish Fiddlers of California, a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation committed to increasing the understanding and awareness of Scottish traditional music, and associated cultures and art forms.
