Fiddlers’ Rally

Hosted by the West Mainland Strathspey and Reel Society, the Fiddlers’ Rally brings together a great number of musicians from throughout Orkney and further afield, for massed performances of traditional tunes.

RallyA staple of the Orkney Folk Festival programme since our very first, in 1983, the Rally – held annually, on the festival’s Sunday afternoon – is a very popular event, for both participants and audiences – and is quite a sight to behold.

It is open to all who want to participate (not just fiddlers) from an intermediate level or greater. If you fancy taking part, the necessary sheet music will be available to download prior to the event –  have a look over, then head along to the Stromness Academy for a rehearsal on Sunday morning, and you’re set.
