Biography

Fiddlers’ Bid are internationally respected as leading exponents of their unique musical heritage and rich fiddle tradition and are global ambassadors for Shetland. A dynamic four fiddle front line joins with a powerhouse of piano, bass, guitar and Scottish harp to create a “display of stunning virtuosity”.

Since their formation in 1991, the “flying fiddles and furious talent” of Fiddlers’ Bid have astounded audiences all over the world with their expressive, high energy music and performance. “Beware: Fiddlers’ Bid is infectious and habit-forming”.

Fiddlers’ Bid have performed at some of the largest folk festivals in the world including the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, USA 2003 and have had two hugely successful tours of Australia and Tasmania, performing at venues such as Melbourne Concert Hall and Sydney Opera House. One tour earned the band a nomination for ‘Best Contemporary Music Presentation’ at a national music award ceremony in Australia.

Their album “Da Farder Ben Da Welcomer” was the Greentrax best selling album of 2002 and they’re latest release “Naked and Bare” has acclaimed reveiws such as “another first class collection… Superb music from superb musicians”, “a consolodation of their reach and territory…sumptuously layered, almost symphonic- sounding” and heralded as “A success on all counts”.
