Fiddle Frenzy

Fiddle Frenzy is Shetland Arts’ annual celebration of the Shetland fiddle tradition. The week of events runs from Sunday to Sunday, during the first week in August each year.

The next Fiddle Frenzy will take place from Sunday 30th July - Sunday 6th August 2017

The event provides an opportunity to learn the secrets of Shetland Fiddle from a range of experienced tutors, explore the thriving musical traditions of our unique and beautiful islands, or simply be part of our Festival Week which is packed with a range of Frenzy Fringe options and Evening Concerts.

The festival is curated by Eunice Henderson and Claire White

This Cultural Festival is not just for fiddle players and aficionados of fiddle music. Core workshops of traditional Shetland fiddle playing and guitar accompaniment are at the heart of the event but the increasingly popular additional workshops offered in creative writing, textiles (knitting techniques) and painting and drawing will once again be on offer.
