  • NEW CLUB SEASON – September 2022- March 2023
August 17th 2022

The AGM of the Shetland Accordion & Fiddle Club will be held in the Shetland Hotel on Thursday 15th September at 7.15pm.

The meeting is open to all current members of the Club.

Membership renewal for the coming season can be made at the meeting and new members are most welcome.

Two committee members are standing down at the AGM so we will be looking to elect two new members.

The ongoing success of both the Club and the annual Festival depends on having a full and active committee so if you think you can help please contact any of the committee prior to the AGM.

The meeting will be followed by the first music night of the new season and will include, among others, the winners of the Shetland Young Fiddler of The Year competitions.

The Club would like to see as many musicians as possible coming along over the winter to have a tune.

Club nights in the Shetland Hotel this season are as follows:


Thursday 15th September - AGM followed by Local Club Night.

Thursday 27th October - Guest Artiste Gavin Piper.
