Folk Frenzy will take place between 14th - 19th July 2019.
A festival of workshops, concerts, sessions and masterclasses, Folk Frenzy is curated by renowned fiddle teacher and performer Kevin Henderson and will run from Sunday 14th – Friday 19th July 2019.
After taking a break for 2018 Fiddle Frenzy has been developed into Folk Frenzy, still with a significant fiddle focus but broadening the festival out to include other aspects of folk music and explore how the Shetland Fiddle tradition fits in with the rest of the traditional music scene elsewhere in the world.
Folk Frenzy 2019 sees the addition of international names to the tuition mix, and the introduction of an ‘ensemble’ class, alongside the fiddle classes to widen the festival out to other musicians and instruments who wish to know more about the Shetland Tradition. The aim is to create a focussed an intimate festival, with a ‘family vibe’, focussing on developing that musical relationship between the players, tutors and different instruments to provide a collaborative and inspiring experience for everyone involved.
