Musical Maggie

I first saw Maggie Adamson perform at the Orkney Folk Festival Open Stage in 2007 (it seems like no time ago, doesn't time fly....) At the time she was only 15, but blew us (and the rest of the audience away) with her playing.

Here's a Youtube clip from the previous year (yes, she was around 14 then!) - I think this was one of the sets she played in the Open Stage - which she won in Orkney that year.

I managed to catch her and Brian Nicholson playing at the Tall Ships event in Shetland this summer - another great concert. She's just won the prestigious Glenfiddich Fiddle Championship - it's by invitation and, as such, is considered to be the premier fiddle competition in Scotland - so many congratulations to her for this well deserved victory.
