As advertised on Scottish TV.

The power and sound of massed fiddles playing Scottish and Celtic music can be experienced by everybody, no matter who or where they are. The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra are the finest exponents in the world of this kind of music.

This is a collection of some of the finest of their performances taken from concerts performed in several different countries, including some slow airs, some Oirishry incarnate, famous old folk tunes, a rather riotous but decidedly danceable Dashing White Sergeant, and an exceedingly energetic Eightsome Reel.

Orchestra conducted by John Mason MBE and Andrew McGarva.
