Blazin’ Fiddles celebrate 20 years of touring and recording and are delighted to honour this birthday with a string of special performances throughout Scotland with special guest singer Karen Matheson.

As a solo performer, Karen has been involved in various projects of collaboration worldwide including the award winning BBC series Transatlantic Sessions, where over the last decade she has filmed tracks with artists like James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, The McGarrigle Sisters, Nanci Griffith, and a host of respected Scottish musicians. Her many collaborations include Algerian singer Idir, Breton guitarist Dan Ar Braz and Portuguese star Dulce Pontes. She has produced four acclaimed ‘solo albums – ‘The Dreaming Sea’, ‘Time to Fall’, ‘Downriver’, and most recently ‘Urram’, with a collection of timeless Gaelic songs that evoke the character and atmosphere of Island life.

With Capercaillie, “the most exciting and vibrant band in the field of Celtic music today” (Billboard), Karen has enjoyed a stellar career. Capercaillie have sold more than a million albums, performed in over thirty countries and written and starred in the blockbuster movie ‘Rob Roy’, with Liam Neeson and Jessica Lange, in which Karen performed a solo rendition of a Gaelic lament

Rare like single malts, each member of Blazin’ Fiddles draws the distinct flavour of music from their part of the Highlands and Islands. Blending solo and ensemble sets, ages with the occasional insightful tale, they come together in a fiery blend to excite your senses. From remote village halls to the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, fiddlers Jenna Reid, Bruce MacGregor, Rua Macmillan and Kristan Harvey are joined by Anna Massie on guitar/fiddle and Angus Lyon on piano to deliver a musically intoxicating evening for all.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Blazin’ Fiddles with Karen Matheson are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
