Take a group of the hottest contemporary fiddle players from the Highlands and Islands, mix with some wonderfully sympathetic piano and guitar arrangements, and you’ve got Scotland’s multi-award winning Blazin’ Fiddles. Over the last two decades, no other band has quite managed to capture the excitement, passion and sensitivity of Scottish music. With a Blazers performance comes the rare opportunity to hear the regional expressions and individual styles of playing. Come to this show at the Universal Hall and the Scots Trad Music Awards’ Folk Band of the Year 2013/14 will remind you why they are perennial favourites here.

Film night – Faith Like Potatoes
Frank Rautenbach leads a strong cast as Angus Buchan, a Zambian farmer of Scottish heritage, who leaves his farm in the midst of political unrest and racially charged land reclaims and travels south with his family to start a better life in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. With nothing more than a caravan on a patch of land, and help from his foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggle to settle in a new country. Faced with ever mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Angus quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction. Based on the inspiring true story by Angus Buchan the book was adapted for the big screen by Regardt van den Bergh and weaves together the moving life journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows his faith, unseen until the harvest.
