Fiddlers’ Bid are one of the most dynamic and exciting musical acts ever to come out of Shetland, a group of islands already famed for its fiddle tradition. Since forming in 1991, Fiddlers’ Bid have taken that tradition to new heights and in many new and exciting directions, not to mention all corners of the globe (including the Sydney Opera House no less) and, as such, are now an internationally established and acclaimed act. Fronted by four of Shetland’s most dynamic fiddlers and sporting a rhythm section ‘engine room’ of bass, piano and guitar to fully compliment them, not to mention probably Scotland’s finest clarsach player in the line up too, Fiddlers’ Bid are one band and a whole range of musical experiences genuinely not to be missed.
