The Caledonian Orchestra of Nova Scotia was formed in 1993 and has evolved into a performance oriented group of musicians dedicated to the promotion of traditional Scottish music. Our Scottish Orchestra has a sound distinctive to the culture of Scotland following the musical compositions and style of William Marshall, Neil Gow, J. Scott Skinner and other composers of this time. The harmonies, timing and tempo all reflect a style of music, unique to a country where history was determined not only by events, but through a developed awareness of dance and song. Scottish music is unique and strives to capture the essence of its people and culture. The type of tunes we play and the use of instruments such as accordions and flutes help to establish and promote the true "Scottish Fiddle Orchestra Sound".
