A reel, a burl, a jig and a hop! Fife Reelers bring live music to people in care across Fife

14th July 2017

The 10th Anniversary Fife Reelers Ball was held in St Andrews in April this year and raised £2,500 for MiHC Scotland. Dancers came from far and wide – from Fife, Inverness, Edinburgh, south of the border and Milan! The funds they raised will be used to provide a series of live musical performances, given by Music in Hospitals & Care’s professional musicians, in hospitals, care homes, hospices and day care centres within Fife.

During these music sessions, audience members, healthcare staff and visiting family and friends will be encouraged to participate and take part by making requests, playing percussion instruments or simply sitting back and relaxing with the music.

  • “We’re hugely grateful to the organisers and guests of the Fife Reelers Ball for this fantastic support. As a volunteer for the charity, I have seen, at first hand, the incredible impact that engagement with live music can have for people of all ages receiving care and support in healthcare settings. Thanks to the generosity of everyone involved in this year’s Reelers Ball, Music in Hospitals’ musicians will be able to bring this impact to our local care settings across Fife.”
    Sheila Ritchie, MiHC Local Ambassador, Fife
