Tyneside Fiddle Alliance
The Tyneside Fiddle Alliance is a community of fiddlers resident in the North East of England, established in celebration of a new “golden age” of fiddle music in that region. In an area renowned for its fiddling tradition, this gathering of fiddlers is the fruit of decades of toil by key individuals within the local folk community. The huge efforts they have made have resulted in a flourishing musical environment which is now experienced on a daily basis in the concert halls and sessions of Tyneside and the surrounding area. Operating an “open door” policy, the Tyneside Fiddle Alliance welcomes fiddlers of all abilities, promoting a friendly, inclusive atmosphere in which musicians build a shared repertoire of local tunes and explore traditions from further afield. With support from Gateshead council, the Tyneside Fiddle Alliance is housed in St Mary’s Heritage Centre, Gateshead, and meets on the first and third Thursday of the month.
