Fremont, CA—Put on your dancing shoes and get ready for a night of spontaneous music by a group as lively as a dance band with the harmony of an orchestra. Over 100 Scottish fiddlers, harpists, drummers and dancers gather together on one stage for an evening packed with song and dance. Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “an experience not to be missed,” their infectious music combines fiddles with drums, harps, flutes, basses, bagpipes, and harmonicas to create a Scottish-tradition-meets-contemporary-tunes experience.

The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers is a volunteer-run organization of over 200 members of different ages and backgrounds from all over Northern California, the US and beyond. This diverse group of people all come together because of their love for traditional Celtic music and culture. The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers tours have covered Northern California all the way to Alaska, including concerts in venues such as Anchorage’s Atwood Hall, and performances at the Lake Tahoe Summer Music Festival. They have performed several times at the Smith Center over the years and local audiences are delighted to share in the experience when they return.

Tickets for this repeat performance are available online or at the box office. Please visit, or call the Smith Center Box Office at (510) 659-6031 for more information.
