Kincardine and Deeside Arts Forum are holding a Fiddle Competition
in November 2011 with the first round being held in
September leading up to the final on the 16th November.
The purpose of this competition is to help raise the profile of young
musical talent and highlight the role of Kincardine and Deeside
Arts Forum in supporting all forms of artistic activity among
groups and individuals within the Aberdeenshire South area.

It is an unusual competition in that it is open to both classical and
traditional players.

KDAF gave grant assistance to Ian Greig of Banchory to enable
him to attend the Newark School of Violin Making. Ian is
very generously gifting one of his hand made violins as the
prize for this competition.
The violin was made in 2008 and is an interpretation of Sacconi Cessols, Antonio Stradivari violin of 1716 and has an insurance value of between £6000 and £7000.
To be eligible to enter the competition, the applicant must have a connection with the Kincardine and Deeside area and must be under 20 years of age on 31st December 2011. The winner will be an individual who shows their passion for the violin and for music in general and will give three performances on the violin at events across the Shire.
