Scottish Fiddle Orchestra at Aberdeen Beach Ballroom

2 April @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

£7.50 – £22.50

The much-loved Scottish Fiddle Orchestra are set to bring their lively programme of traditional Scottish music to Aberdeen Beach Ballroom on Sunday 2 April 2023.


The 80-strong orchestra, led by conductor Blair Parham, will share the stage with talented local favourites the Granite City Pipes and Drums for an afternoon of world-class entertainment perfect for the whole family. 

Music lovers of all ages can expect to enjoy toe-tapping reels and jigs, lively strathspeys and marches, and poignant slow airs performed by the skilled members of one of Scotland’s foremost traditional music organisations. 


The orchestra, which has promoted traditional Scottish music for more than 40 years, last performed in Aberdeen last year in the presence of their royal patron The Princess Royal. This year’s show will see Robert Lovie, a favourite in the north east, take up the mantle as master of ceremonies once again. 


Bob Diament, Chairman of the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra, said: “We can’t wait to be back in Aberdeen where the SFO performed their first ever concert back in 1980. The Beach Ballroom is an iconic venue, and the audience in Aberdeen are always fantastic and welcoming. We’re delighted to be joined by the incredible Granite City Pipes and Drums.  Together, we will be going on a musical journey from the seafront in Aberdeen to the Northern Isles and back without getting our feet wet. 


“Our captain and conductor, Blair Parham, can guarantee a smooth passage and our navigator and compere, Robert Lovie, will guide us safely through the voyage. The crew are raring to go so we hope to see people of all ages join us for what is sure to be a fantastic afternoon of live music.”


The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra is a charity run by volunteers and is fully self-supported. The orchestra makes donations to other musical-related charities, partner pipe bands, medical charities and the RNLI.
