As the leaves start to change and autumn sets in, new changes are afoot with the Blazers. After 12 years and being one of the founder members of Blazin’ Fiddles, Catriona Macdonald has decided to leave the band. It wasn’t an easy decision for Catriona, but was sparked by an urge to pursue other musical projects, along with her increased responsibilities as the Degree Programme Director for the Folk Degree Course at Newcastle University. As a long time member of Blazin’ Fiddles she will be missed for her musical flair and “keeping the boys in line”. "Right from the very first idea for Blazin’ Fiddles, Catriona was top of the list." says fellow band member Bruce, "She's a great ambassador for Shetland music and we will greatly miss her. We all wish her the very best for all her musical projects, and we are certain we'll be working with her on future projects."
Catriona's final Blazers concert will be at at Blazin’ in Beauly next month, which will be an appropriate time for a big send off. No doubt she will show up on your music venue doorsteps soon either solo, with her trio or with the String Sisters. "It's been a blast, and I wish the Blazers every success in the coming years." says Catriona.
The band are pleased to announce that Jenna Reid will be filling the sparklie
