THERE will be more than fiddlers three as ‘Britain’s fiddling supergroup’ head to the North-East next week.

Feast of Fiddles will mark its silver jubilee with a concert at Hexham’s Queen’s Hall on Wednesday.

The band features a number of fiddlers from cult bands, including Peter Knight (Steeleye Span), Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention), Brian McNeill (Battlefield Band), Ian Cutler (Bully Wee), Tom Leary (Lindisfarne) and Garry Blakely (Band Two).

They will be joined on stage by backing guitars, keyboards, saxophones and accordions, all held together by ex-Fairport Convention drummer Dave Mattacks.
