Welcome to the Billings Ceilidh Fiddlers home!

The Billings Ceilidh Fiddlers perform traditional celtic folk music and was founded in 2001 by Janny Kirk, who has been involved in Scottish Fiddling most of her adult life. The group began as a session Scottish fiddle group and plays frequent engagements in the Billings, Montana area. The fiddlers have twice toured in the British Isles, with trips to Scotland and Ireland. The size of the group varies but regularly performs with twenty. The fiddler's membership is representative of all ages and abilities. The purpose of the fiddle group is to foster the development of players who wish to perform traditional celtic music-and to have fun doing it! The group has recorded 3 cds- "Sessions", "Caledonia", and "9:07". Cds can purchased at Kirk House of Music in Billings.
