The Boston Scottish Fiddle Club is devoted to educating the public about traditional Scottish music and culture, embracing musicians of all levels on any instrument, as well as listeners. While most of our members play the fiddle, many play other instruments, and we often have guitar, mandolin, banjo, flute, penny whistle, accordion, concertina and bodhran in our sessions. We are open to any instrument!
Since the club’s inception in 1999 the BSFC has offered instruction in playing Scottish music through monthly workshops led by leading musicians in the field of Scottish music, known for their outstanding teaching capability or virtuosity or both. Monthly sessions (Wednesday evenings) give us the opportunity to get together with other musicians in the community and play our favorite tunes. The Young Fiddlers Workshop Series provides an opportunity for the next generation of musicians, on any instrument, to learn tunes with their peers. The Boston Scottish fiddle Orchestra, the performing group of the club, allows us to share our music with the community.
