After another successfull Rally in 2019, and after a delay due to the unfortunate Covid-19 situation, our next Annual Rally will be held on Saturday 12 February 2022 in the Empire Theatre, Eden Court, Inverness.
As always, Inverness Fiddlers will be joined by players from all over Scotland and beyond and we hope again to create an orchestra of over 100 musicians. As in the past, we will also be inviting Special Guests to join us.
Joining us for our 2022 Rally wilbe Sarah-Jane Summers and Juhani Silvola (Fiddle/Hardanger Fiddle & Guitar)
"Virtuosic folk music with telepathic interplay"
Sarah-Jane Summers & Juhani Silvola are an internationally acclaimed duo whose two albums both received Top of the World status from Songlines magazine. In the spring of 2021, they celebrated 10 years of having played together by releasing their thrid album. Their laser precsie rythms and timbral experimentation create a unique sound where Scottish and Nordic traditions merge naturally together.
Sarah-Jane is one of Scotland's leading fiddlers, and has a Masters Degree in Norwegian Folk Music and Improvisation from The Norwegian Academy of Music. In addition to being a highly versatile and soughtafter guitarist, Juhani also composes electroacoustic contemporary music and is a record producer.
Both have worked with top names within folk, pop and experimental music both in the UK, and in Norway where they live. Sarah-Jane is a founder member of RANT and plays with the GRIT Orchestra.
Their music contains the full range of emotions, contrasting beauty and light with raw darkness. A concert with Sarah-Jane and Juhani is an experience that captivates both the mind and the body of the listener, and gives equal opportunities for wild dancing and introspective contemplation.
Originally from Inverness, Sarah-Jane was taught by the late, great Donald Riddell.
