The MacLeod Fiddlers are a Scottish youth group from the county of Glengarry, a hot bed of Scottish culture in Ontario, Canada. They are the performance group for “The MacLeod School of Fiddling” which focuses on the teaching, promotion and preservation of the Glengarry Scottish fiddle.

As well as performing in their local area, they have also made three trips to Canada’s East Coast where they have performed at the “Festival of Cape Breton Fiddling”. In the USA they have performed at the Loon Mountain Highland Games in Lincoln, New Hampshire and the Scottish Festival in Dundee, New York. For nine years in a row they have performed at the Greater Philadelphia Mid-winter Scottish & Irish Festival, an international event held every February. In July of 2012 they did a successful two week tour of Scotland.

They have recorded two CD's which include “Ceilidh Time” in 2005 and Glengarry Roots” in 2010.

They are under the direction of teacher & instructor Ian R. MacLeod.
