Blazin’ Fiddles features the hottest contemporary fiddle players from the highlands and islands of Scotland. From solo to ensemble sets, they all come together in a fiery blend that raises the roof. Fiddlers Jenna Reid, Bruce Macgregor, Allan Henderson and Iain Macfarlane are joined by Anna Massie on guitar/fiddle and Andy Thorburn on keyboard to form one of the best live acts today.

Blazin’ Fiddles is currently on its first tour of the United States. European festival appearances have included the Cambridge Folk Festival, the Sidmouth International Music Festival, Lorient, Tønder Festival, the Falun Festival and Scotland’s premier event, Celtic Connections. Their fifth and latest studio album, “Thursday Night in the Caley,” came out last year.

Built from a one hundred year-old barn with attached farmhouse, the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts is a vibrant cultural and arts center that offers an eclectic mix of music, films, art, lectures and other various events. For more information visit
