Edinburgh Highland Reel & Strathspey Society Annual Concert on Saturday 10th March 2018
The Edinburgh Highland Reel & Strathspey Society is pleased to return to The Queen’s Hall to present a varied programme of traditional Scottish Fiddle music. The evening will feature the orchestra, under the baton of well-known Scottish fiddle player Yla Steven BEM, playing marches, strathspeys, reels, jigs and hauntingly beautiful slow airs. ln addition, EHRSS welcome back the renowned Scottish tenor Dennis Haggerty who has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the country with his vibrant voice. Piper Martin Duncan will start the evening off in the traditional manner. The host for the evening will be Robert Lovie, commentator at several highland games including the prestigious Braemar Gathering, and a popular compere known for his distinctive Doric humour. Founded in 1881, the society was the first of its type. Its members are proud to continue that tradition today. In 2016 they appeared on BBC’sThe One Show as part of a feature on Mendelssohn’s travels in Scotland and also performed at the Stirling Bridge lnternational Arts Festival in Perth Concert Hall. In 2017 they won the orchestra competition at Kirriemuir Fiddle Festival for the fifth time and performed at fundraising concerts, conferences and community events as well as their annual concert here in The Queen’s Hall.
