The Stirling Caledonian Strathspey and Reel Society was formed in 1931 and is a non profit-making Traditional Scottish Music Society.
Our Conductor, Bill Cook is an outstanding musician who is also the leader of the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra, a position he has held for 30 years. Bill is violin teacher and a composer of a wide range of Scottish Music.
The members of the Society meet at 7.30 every Tuesday evening (excepting summer months) in the Wallace High School, Stirling. The highlight of our musical year is the Annual Fiddlers' Rally which will be held again in March 2019.
The Society also gives incidental performances, often at concerts supporting the fund raising activities of other organisations.
The players neither receive or seek any form of payment. Our key aim is to remain an active music Society within the Stirling area, continuing to enjoy playing the music whilst providing access to quality performances at an affordable cost for our audiences.
We have inherited a vast collection of Traditional Scottish Fiddle Music, by numerous composers. We aim to maintain this music for the benefit of future generations as we believe that it constitutes part of our National Heritage.
