The Scots Fiddle Festival is a charitable organisation. Continued public and private sector funding is therefore vital to ensure that the ambitions and aspirations of the festival are realised. We appreciate donations at all levels and if you would like to support the festival, please email us at


Fiddle 2015 is run by the Scots Fiddle Festival Ltd. We are a charity run totally by volunteers and our aim is ‘to promote traditional fiddle music so that it can hold its place in the culture of Scotland and the world’. We are inviting everyone who cares about the future of fiddling in Scotland to become a member of the organisation. We really need your support to help keep the festival going – and it will only cost you the price of a couple of coffees or beers (£5)!

By becoming a member, you will:
·         help to give traditional fiddling a strong and vibrant future in Scotland.
·         support the many young fiddlers who are taking forward the tradition, and who perform at the festival.
·         get the opportunity to help plan the event.
·         receive advance notice of the programme.
·         receive advance notice and be entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting.
