Colin MacLeod:

The Celtic Fiddler Guru

Colin MacLeod, known as the Celtic Fiddle Guru, is originally from Scotland.

Colin, a Celtic fiddle player with over 40 years experience, has achieved Grade 8 Violin Distinction, recorded 7 CDs, played in Celtic bands in Australia, and has run Celtic fiddle workshops in Scotland, Australia and the United States since 2007.

Colin started playing the violin in Scotland at the age of seven and spent his teenage years travelling across Scotland playing and winning competitions until the age of 15. Colin was classically trained through the school system in Scotland, regularly playing in both the Regional Youth Orchestra and National Youth String Orchestra of Scotland. In his final year of school, Colin achieved Distinction in Grade 8 Violin.

Outside of school, Colin followed his passion for Celtic and Scottish music, playing in concerts all over Scotland. He entered Scottish fiddle competitions which helped Colin to hone his Celtic fiddle playing technique and unique sound.

He now regularly performs and teaches, both in person and online. In addition to 2022 touring plans, Colin will also be catching up with some of his students in person in the UK, US and Australia.

Colin Macleod: The Celtic Fiddler Guru

The CFG online Celtic Fiddle School, www.celticfiddleguru.com, through its online courses, teaches students to play Celtic Fiddle by ear.

Its founder, Colin MacLeod, also regularly teaches and performs. Leading up to the Festival Colin will be teaching a 6 week Course, Playing by Ear, then throughout the weekend, listen to Colin’s playing and stories to find out more about Celtic Fiddle and its Scottish heritage.

Playing by Ear

===========

‘The ancient art of playing by ear, helped people to tell stories to those far and near.

The music, words & stories could really upset a dirge, especially when they gave people permission to dance and sing,

And be happy for a while whilst their lives were in full swing.

So during the weekend, catch up with Colin for some music, stories and mirth, in The Towne or around the campfire,

unless you have to something prior.’

 

We look forward to catching up with you at the 2022 Mississippi Renaissance Festival soon.
