The Fochabers Fiddlers



The Fochabers Fiddlers is an energetic fiddle group of Milne’s High School pupils aged 12-18 years old.

James Alexander formed the group in 1980 with his initial aim being to encourage young musicians to play and take an interest in Scottish Music.

In the summer of 1980, James and David Ferguson, the then minister of Bellie Church, organized a trip to the Shetland Isles.  After that, as James said “that was the birth of the monster!”

We have been on many tours to various parts of America and have also been to Germany a couple of times.

The Fochabers Fiddlers also have a Frontline made up of the more experienced fiddlers and, along with James, lead the group.
