Local community music group Riddell Fiddles would like to thank the community for their support during the group’s hectic lottery-funded six-month tour of the Borders and beyond.

Bands who have joined with the group to present the seven concert series ending the winter tour at the Ebba Centre at St Abbs include Dere Street, Borders Fiddle Group, Carlenjig, Langholm Folk, Ron Hastings and many more.

One appreciative audience member said: “Riddell Fiddles were accompanied by three guitarists, a very good double bass player and that rare thing, an unobtrusive but skillful drummer.

“Together, they made a very cheerful sound.”

Continuing events include a rerun, by demand, of ‘The Cranston Fiddle’ in East Lothian and at the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as performances by Riddell Fiddles at various venues in the Borders including at Wilton Park, Hawick, in June.
