Buckingham Fringe Week – Oxford Fiddle Group

The Buckingham Fringe Week would not be same without the Oxford Fiddle Group.

The ever popular Oxford Fiddle Group are returning to Buckingham again for the online Fringe Week. They perform songs and tunes mainly from England and Scotland, but also from Ireland and the USA. Some players also play other instruments besides the fiddle, so a typical line up for one of their performances could include a celtic harp, double bass, guitar, mandolin and concertina.

This weekend watch an online performance by them via the Buckingham Town Council You Tube channel.
