Aberdeen based orchestras of fiddles and accordions that practice, perform and preserve traditional Scottish music.

Book us to perform traditional Scottish music

In addition to the concerts that we organise ourselves, the orchestras of Aberdeen Strathspey & Reel Society are available for various entertaining purposes:

  • Members of the orchestras have performed concerts at numerous church halls, community centres, and nursing homes to either help with fundraising or simply for entertaining;
  • We can also provide music for corporate entertainment and other events. For example, we have performed at Aberdeen's Tartan Day, new car launches and entertained royal visitors during a visit to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary;
  • We can provide a wide range of sizes of groups from 4 players upwards
  • Playing times can range from 30 mins up to a full length concert

Depending on the nature of the event and the number of players involved we may only request a nominal donation towards our running costs. Contact us to discuss charges for larger and non-commercial events.

Please note that we don't provide a ceilidh band service, although we do perform Scottish dance music as part of a concert programme.

If you would like to book the orchestra please email secretary@aberdeenstrathspey.org.uk or phone 01224 676482 and leave a message on our answerphone (as we're only staffed part-time please leave a message - it's easier for us to phone you back).
