 The Fiddler of Strathspey Festival, held in Grantown on Spey annually, is now in its fifth year, and is a celebration of the work of Angus Cumming and the rich Strathspey tradition. It promises to provide a stage for musicians young and old, novices and masters.  Fiddlers and other traditional musicians are invited to take part in a celebration of “the strathspey” in all its forms, its music, its songs and its dance.

There is an opportunity to showcase talent and enthusiasm in the Friday & Saturday morning’s competitions, climaxing in the presentation of the Maggie Adamson Goblet to the “2019 Fiddler of Strathspey”and an award for the 2019 Junior Fiddler of Strathspey.  As well as this prestigious award there are fiddle classes for 9 and under, 12 and under and 16 and under.  Open trophies also include the Reidhaven Quaich and the John McGregor Memorial Trophy.  The Imray Trophy will be presented to the fiddler whose enthusiasm and potential most impress the judges.   St Columba’s and the Wheatley Hall provide a most attractive venue for audiences and the competitors, challenging their peers, playing well rehearsed pieces and gaining valuable experience under the watchful eye of our very supportive and knowledgeable adjudicators.
