By Louise Glen

Highland musicians are aiming to bring some traditional musical cheer to those stuck at home during the coronavirus lockdown.

Blazin' Fiddles maestros Bruce MacGregor and Anna Massie are planning to take to the small screen to share some foot-stompin' fun on Friday night.

Mr MacGregor, who also runs MacGregor's Bar in Inverness, said he wanted to bring the music into people's homes.

He said: "This is for anyone who might have an interest in trad music or is even just looking for something a bit different.

"These are worrying times for all of us but hopefully we can help each other out."

Mr MacGregor is well-known on the traditional music scene both as a soloist and as part of Blazin' Fiddles. The live music session will be shared on social media.

He continued: "We will play some tunes from our album The Highlander’s Revenge in MacGregor’s Bar on Friday night.

"This is an online concert – please share as widely as possible."

Within minutes of the event being posted on line more than 60 people had signed up.
