This past October 10 to 14, 2019, marked the 32nd annual Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival (SAFF) held in the Shetland Islands. In my last post I told you how to get to Shetland from America. This is part one about our experience at the festival and focuses on the festival club and the various venues around the islands. For a quick overview refer to the festival program HERE. More information is available at the festival website https://www.shetlandaccordionandfiddle.com/.
I play you some tunes on the electric fiddle, too: a tune from Missouri called 50 Years Ago Waltz, a Shetland tune by Ronnie Cooper called Miss Susan Cooper and the Canadian Jig composed by Ned Landry called Ripple Rock Jig.
The next podcast and post will tell you all about the Festival Club sessions, the Grand Dance at the Clickimin Center and the Garrison Theatre Concerts.Read more
