Accordion and fiddles kick off 83rd music festival - Dumfries and Galloway Standard

"YOUNG musicians battled it out on Saturday, when the accordion and fiddle section kicked off the 83rd Dumfries and District Music Festival in traditional style.
Accordion entries held up well, despite a UK eliminator being held in Paisley on the same day, but entries for fiddle section were well down due to a number of previous competitors not having a teacher.
On the whole, the day ran smoothly thanks, not only to the performers and teachers, but also to the many helpers who gave their time to the festival.
The adjudicators this year were Iain Cathcart for accordion and Ian Kirkpatrick for fiddle."
