Massed Fiddle Tunes 2024

Greetings! Plans are now underway for the 75th edition of The Glengarry Highland Games which will be held on Friday & Saturday August 2nd & 3rd. As in past years, the Glengarry Massed Fiddlers will be one of the main highlights in the Friday night tattoo and on Saturday afternoon at the Scottish Fiddle Concert in the air-conditioned Arena Hall. This is your invitation to participate with the Glengarry Massed Fiddlers in these events. Below is the information for the tune set list, practice dates, workshop, guest fiddler, & fiddle schedule for the weekend.

Note; due to some reorganization over the last few years we may have missed some fiddlers. If you know of anyone, would you please forward their name and email address to Similarly, if you would like to be removed from this mailing list, please let us know at the above email address.

Another highlight of the weekend will be the Scottish Youth Fiddlers’ Showcase on Friday afternoon where you can hear some of the great young fiddlers from the area and beyond. If you know of any youth fiddler who might like to take part, please let someone on the Committee know.


This year we are pleased to announce that our guest fiddler and workshop instructor will be Judi Nicolson, a champion Scottish fiddler originally from Banchory Scotland now living in Katy, Texas. She will be accompanied by local renowned musicians Fred Collins & Kathy Fraser Collins, a dynamic husband and wife team from St-Anne de Prescott.

To read the full bios and fiddle schedule, you can visit the Glengarry Highland Games Fiddle Page at

Below is a file of tunes that Judi Nicolson has forwarded for the workshop. She would like fiddlers attending the workshop to come prepared with their own printed sheets if possible.
