Iain MacFarlane

Fiddle

Born and bred in the historical West Highland village of Glenfinnan, Iain MacFarlane has been immersed in Highland music and song all his days. From a young age he received tutelage on the bagpipes and fiddle from his father, Charlie and also from famed Loch Ness-side fiddler, Donald Riddell as well as Pipe Major Evan MacRae. 

The world renowned Blazin’ Fiddles ensemble was the main stay of his performing work over the past twenty years but Iain has also been involved in musical collaborations with Boys of the Lough, Phil Cunningham, Iain MacDonald and the toe-tapping Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band. Iain and Ingrid also run Old Laundry Productions, a studio and music production company based in Glenfinnan which has produced award winning albums such as Duncan Chisholm’s ‘Farrar’ and Julie Fowlis’s ‘Dual’.
