A rare opportunity to see fantastic talent, high energy and musical panache.
In 1966 the small communities of Brecon and Saline formed the first Welsh-American sister city relationship and the bonds between the two towns have grown into a close and active friendship. For this reason Brecon is delighted to welcome the Saline Fiddlers to the town as part of the group’s British tour.
These exciting musicians have travelled the world and have been honoured to perform three times at The White House, The Kennedy Centre and The Presidents Inaugural Ball. An audience of all ages will revel in the irresistible energy of the Saline Fiddlers- dazzling fiddling, lively dancing and singing as contagious as you can get!
The Fiddlers will be playing at the Brecon Cathedral and against the specatular backdrop of Pen-y-Fan at the Brecon Beacons National Park’s Mountain Centre.
