Please join San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers in concert with Alasdair Fraser for the Grand Finale of our 29th Spring Concert Series, coming for the first time to Livermore and the Bankhead Theater.

We offer the gift of a year of musical exploration, captured in a performance spilling over with excitement and shared enjoyment. This special program celebrates the gathered influences and the beating heart of Celtic music, and follows the song of the Fiddle from California to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, to Scotland and Ireland, Scandinavia and Spain. We want you with us on our journey!

Something Ancient and Something New: The stage fills with over 100 performers, players of all ages, who share each show's creation in dance and song, fiddle and cello, piano and drum, harp and guitar, bagpipe and flute; the hall bursts with an infectious sense of fun and joy in community-based music making… or music-based community, depending on how one looks at it: "We basically take a village on the road; we're living the music" says the group's music director, renowned Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser. Step outside the world for an afternoon, and join us for an out-of-this-world experience!
