The Scottish Fiddle Music tradition includes tunes written for fiddle, accordion, whistle - any melody instrument - plus bagpipe tunes and songs. Geographically the tradition extends throughout Scotland, including Shetland, and followed the influx of immigrants to Cape Breton in Nova Scotia.

Our purpose: to educate the public in the full spectrum of Scottish music styles - including playing styles, regional differences, composer variations and historical context - through public meetings, workshops, musical publications and other activities.
