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

History

Aberdeen Strathspey and Reel Society was established in 1928.  Since then the society has flourished to it's current level of 85 regular members.  These members range in age from 11 to over 90. We also have a well attended junior section.

The society performs at various venues throughout the North East of Scotland including at least one main concert per year.  In more recent years however we have broadened our horizons with trips to France, Ireland, Canada and Shetland.

The society has always supported local charities and many of its concerts are used to raise funds.  We are also regularly found at old folks homes and nursing homes playing for the residents.  Our more senior members are even allowed to leave sometimes.

Below is a picture of us celebrating our 50th Anniversary with a concert in the Music Hall.

Aberdeen Strathspey and Reel Society 50th anniversary concert: on stage at the Music Hall

To celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2003 we produced a book which highlights more of the history of the Society.  It also includes many of the tunes synonymous with the Society as well as several stories from and about Society members past and present.

The book and CDs are available to purchase at our concerts or online.
