Riddell Fiddles is a music group based in Selkirk, Scottish Borders. The group’s main aim is the pursuit of musical fun and, to that end, the group ( now consisting of several bands of all ages and musical genres) have travelled the world including Scotland and performed at a myriad of functions and festivals. The fiddlers are supported by a strong ‘boy band’ of guitars/ double bass and percussion not to forget our lady on the keyboard and can lighten up every event.
Started in 2003 as a teaching group at a time when traditional musical opportunities were not so prevalent the group has persisted over the years and their website is know as a traditional music resource the world over.
Projects such as the Cranston Fiddle ( a sell out at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015) and various tours have raised the group’s profile.
The group was nominated in the Digital Innovations category of the Arts and Business Scotland Awards for their partnership with local business ‘ Spectrum Sound and Light’.Sheila Sapkota, the group’s leader, was inducted into the Trad Music Hall of Fame in September 2015 for her services to traditional music.
Our aim is to encourage other musicians – not just fiddle players – to join and benefit from group meetings and performances.
