Fiddlers˚ Bid are internationally respected as leading exponents of their rich fiddle tradition and are global ambassadors for Shetland. Since forming in 1991, they have established an identity as a unique band with a harmonious and symphonic sound developed though many years of playing together. 

"The musical tornado known as Fiddlers Bid" have a magnetic four fiddle front line of Shetland's finest - Chris Stout, Kevin Henderson, Andrew Gifford and Maurice Henderson joined with Scotland's dynamic harper, Catriona McKay and a powerhouse rhythm section of ace Irish musician and guitarist Seán Óg Graham with top Newcastle bassist Neil Harland to create a “display of stunning virtuosity”.
