RootsBase: Bruce MacGregor with Anna Massie

May 28, 2019 7:30 pm
May 28, 2019 9:30 pm

A new live music club – dedicated to presenting the very best in folk, trad and roots-based!

Bruce MacGregor is one of Scotland’s most celebrated and accomplished fiddle players. Taught by the great Donald Riddell CBE, Bruce’s style encapsulates the finest points of Highland fiddle music – bold and rugged at times, lyrical and beautiful at others.

Bruce is probably best known as founder and driving force behind the multi award winning Blazin’ Fiddles. He also toured and recorded with the first incarnation of Gaelic supergroup, Cliar.

He set up the award winning fiddle school, Blazin’ in Beauly, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2010. Bruce was named as the new presenter of BBC Radio Scotland‘s flagship folk show, Travelling Folk, in 2010, which he continues to this day.
