Blackford Fiddle Group

To Captain Fiddle


My colleague, Hugh Smith, was in touch with you a few months ago on the subject of left-handed fiddlers. I don't know how much he said about the background but the topic arose out of a fiddle group which I run in Blackford, Perthshire ( Blackford's sole claim to fame is that it's where Highland Spring mineral water is bottled). 


I've been trying to establish a culture through the village primary school in which playing

the fiddle is regarded as a part of normal life rather than something exotic which especially talented people do. It's been pretty interesting in many ways but, to come to the point, I've set up a web site as part of the process of keeping them all involved and interested.

Note from Ryan: My hat is off to Peter and the Blackford Fiddle Group!
