The annual Scots Fiddle Festival is looking for volunteers in a variety of roles to help make this year's festival happen.

The Scots Fiddle Festival started in 1996 with the aim of promoting and sustaining traditional fiddle music, and 20 years on this is still the aim.

Throughout the years, the amount of events at the festival has tripled. It brings people together from all over the world, both performers and audience members and continues to inspire thousands of people to enjoy and take part in traditional music, either as players, learners, listeners or dancers.  

The all-volunteer committee spends the whole year organising the festival and is helped by a further army of enthusiastic volunteers in the run-up to, and during, the festival weekend, which this year takes place from 17 -19 November

Volunteer roles range from Venue Coordinators, Stewards and Artist Liaison Assistants, to Information Desk Hosts and Stage Management Assistants. There are also year-round volunteer opportunities available as part of the committee.

Volunteering as part of the Fiddle Festival is a great way to see the acts for free and be part of a dynamic and eclectic volunteer team. 

If you are interested in supporting this year's Fiddle Festival in a voluntary capacity, please contact [email protected].
