About the Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra
The Ayrshire Fiddle Orchestra was founded in August 1982 by Wallace and Lex Galbraith, both string instrument tutors in Ayrshire in South West Scotland, with the aim of encouraging and developing Scots ddle music among young local musicians, many of whom were, or had been, their pupils.
The Orchestra has steadily matured since those early beginnings and now has 130 violinists, cellists, bass players and percussionists from 10 to 18 years old. Scots ddler and former member of the orchestra David Moore is now Musical Director of the AFO.
The AFO continues to engage, excite and enlighten others about Scots music today!
