Fiddle Workshop & Ceilidh with Judi Nicolson

Jul 3, 2016 | Events, Workshop


Scottish fiddler Judi Nicolson, originally from Banchory, is a consummate performer; her dynamic fiddling, engaging stage presence, and deep understanding of Scotland’s music has created a demand for her solo appearances, concerts, and dances throughout the UK and Americas with a variety of groups. Although classically trained from an early age, her passion was to play Traditional Scottish Fiddle Music. By the age of fifteen, she had won three major Open Scottish Fiddle Championships.  Judi went on to play at various music venues throughout the UK, both as a soloist and with some of the finest Scottish Dance Bands. Over the years, Judi has recorded numerous sessions for radio, appeared on television and in theatre. She has recorded 2 solo albums and 14 albums with various musicians/bands over the years. She also published a book of her own compositions. Judi qualified as a violin teacher for both classical and traditional fiddle in Scotland. In summer 2008 Judi, husband Ian, and their two children relocated from the Shetlands to Katy, Texas, USA where Judi continues to teach students and plays for concerts and for Scottish Country dances, workshops, and balls.
