Still Recruiting New Members
29 April 2010
Alford Fiddlers are actively recruiting new members. Our numbers remain strong, but it would be nice to maintain a healthy group of fiddlers, accordion players and possibly other instruments. Other instruments which might be suitable may include double bass, cello, viola, mandolin, mandola and dulcimer, and small pipes and whistle/flute. We would also like to recruit a second keyboard player if at all possible. We have a number of links with other traditional music groups throughout the country and visiting players are always welcome (we may even be able to find you a spare instrument). Practices are held on Wednesday evenings, from 7.30pm until approximately 9.00pm, at Alford Heritage Centre, Mart Road, Alford. There is no membership fee, although a small donation is welcome to the Heritage Centre to cover the cost of heating and lighting for the practice sessions. We play a wide range of traditional music, but particularly that from the North East of Scotland and from Cape Breton, and our practices are a warm friendly evening where players of all abilities are welcome. We perform for charities and social events on six or seven occasions throughout the year, and frequently donate our performance fee to the organisation involved. If you would like us to play for your event, please make contact through this website.
