A Highland Fiddler

Three of the best fiddlers currently playing in Scotland - all from ‘Blazing Fiddles’ etc. Joined by Jonny Hardie (Old Blind Dogs) on fiddle; Rory Campbell on whistles and pipes; Christine Hanson on Cello and Brain McAlpine piano, keyboards and accordion.

This CD is dedicated primarily to the compositions and settings of the late Donald Riddell, Inverness. Piper and Fiddler, he taught fiddle to hundreds of youngsters during his long and distinguished career. (Literally a legend in his lifetime)

Tremendous tunes highlighted by brilliant fiddle playing (in Scottish highland style) from three of his star pupils.

One of my all time favourite trad music CD’s

PS would love to share some anecdotes but most of them libellous.

Re: A Highland Fiddler

I don’t think that Donald Riddell got a CBE; was it a BEM which he got in 1988?
