Commuters at Glasgow Central station have been treated to a pop-up performance from the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra (SFO).
A group of musicians from the collective played a selection of tunes on Thursday afternoon to promote their summer concerts.
The events, taking place in Edinburgh and Glasgow, will reunite the orchestra with the audience after Covid, promising family-friendly fun and unforgettable entertainment.
The SFO have been tradition bearers for Scottish music for more than 40 years and the performances will feature the full orchestra with soloists and a pipe band playing infectious jigs to poignant slow airs.
Come and join us for a dance at Glasgow’s Central Station! We’re here until 4.30pm 🙌🎻

Bob Diament, SFO Chairman, said: “We are delighted to be able to return to the Edinburgh and Glasgow stages this summer. Our musicians thrive when they can experience the energy of a live audience and the people who attend our shows are always so enthusiastic and engaged.
“We know so many people have missed coming together to watch us perform and so we can’t wait to play these two special concerts for audiences old and new this summer.”
Run solely by volunteers, The SFO is a charity that is fully self-supported. The orchestra makes donations to other musical-related charities, partner pipe bands, medical charities and the RNLI.
This year they have donated to Drake Music Scotland, Gig Buddies, Sistema Scotland and The Gaiety Theatre Ayr.
