Top Swedish Nycklharpa player Peter Hedlund will play at St Margaret’s with our own well kent fiddle maestro Paul Anderson and some songs by Shona Donaldson.


Already something of a legend in the time honoured fiddle tradition of Scotland; Paul Anderson is the finest Scots fiddler of his generation. Peter Puma Hedlund is considered Sweden’s leading traditional player of the modern chromatic nyckelharpa, having won the title World Champion twice, in 1992 and 2000. He earned the designation Riksspelman – Fiddler of the Realm – while still in his teens (1975). Peter and his nyckelharpa are a commanding presence whilst in the act of bringing forth music. Pure magic. His music is a powerful example of continuation – an unbroked thread linking past, present and future. Shona Donaldson is a Scots singer and fiddler from Tarland. 2009 Scots singer of the year. 2015 Bothy Ballad Champion of Champions.

 “Anderson can blaze through a reel with the ferocity of a forest fire on a track ,then play a waltz with all the grace and subtlety of a swan the next. He’s an extremely talented musician“ - The Green Man Review
