This event is a celebration of all aspects of folk music and explores how the Shetland fiddle tradition fits in with other traditional music scenes elsewhere in the world. It is a week of masterclasses, workshops and tuition that aims to create a focused and intimate festival, with a ‘family vibe’. The week culminates in the ‘Big Gig’ where participants perform music they have been working on in their classes during the week.

Shetland Folk Frenzy is held in Lerwick at the Mareel arts centre. Full Frenzy and Half Frenzy tickets are available, depending on how many events you'd like to participate in.
