The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Fiddlers represent the very best of Shetland fiddle music.

Led by Margaret Robertson, a native Shetlander and tutor of almost 40 years, the Tattoo Fiddlers support traditional fiddle playing. Alongside, the Tattoo Pipes and Drums, and Dancers, the Fiddlers have been developed to encourage and promote traditional Scottish art forms, ensuring these cultural identities are shared internationally and passing on skills and traditions across the generations.

Our Fiddlers have previously supported activity at the Royal Highland Show, the British Embassy in Prague, The Norwegian Military Tattoo, the Silk Road Expo in Xi’an China, the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey and the Shanghai International Wind Music Festival. Most recently, they have performed at Musikfest der Bundeswehr in Düsseldorf.
