Wednesday 11 July
The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen

NAFCo Ambassador and celebrated North-East Fiddler Paul Anderson and his band perform his acclaimed album High Summit live.

Also on tonight's bill is the award-winning Nordic Fiddler's Bloc: 3 outstanding fiddlers from Norway, Sweden and Shetland. Expect inventive and innovative interpretations of traditional and contemporary tunes from their homelands.

"Paul Anderson’s evocative compositions take you on a tour around the landscape - you will hear everything from gently babbling brooks to majestic mountains, from marching bands to a jolly good knees up" - Bright Young Folk

"Seldom before can three fiddlers have sounded so well matched as The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. And seldom before can three fiddles have sounded so much like four and at times five instruments without using electronic trickery.Just by the voicings, discipline and arrangements they bring to tunes from their native Norway, Sweden and Shetland, Olav Luksengård Mjelva, Anders Hall and Kevin Henderson project the depth and breadth of sound and precision of a string quartet." - Rob Adams, The Herald
