The North Atlantic Fiddle Convention (NAFCo) is an international festival and academic conference celebrating the many styles of fiddle playing and associated dance traditions that exist around the North Atlantic – the largest event of its kind in the UK!

As a travelling event, NAFCo has been a meeting place for artists, academics and audiences to celebrate different cultures, as well as innovation in tradition.
Having previously taken place in Aberdeen, Derry/Donegal and Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, it sees audiences, musicians and dancers travelling from around the world!

From 11-15 July 2018, NAFCo will return to Aberdeen and the North East, with a packed programme of more than 150 events, including interactive workshops, concerts, interviews, talks, academic papers, film screenings, exhibits, busking, and live-music sessions, featuring over 60 artists representing a variety of fiddle traditions from Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, Scandinavia, Spain, Canada, USA and beyond.

NAFCo visitors can enjoy a concert at one of Aberdeen’s flagship venues, an intimate showcase by candlelight, or kick up their heels at a village ceilidh or the family-friendly Festival club – there is truly something for everyone.

Venues: various venues around Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire

Some of them: The Lemon Tree – Festival Hub & Festival Club; His Majesty’s Theatre, Woodend Barn, Haddo House, St Margaret’s Braemar, Dalrymple Hall, Garlogie Village Hall, Glenbuchat Hall.
