‘A community music group with members of all ages and abilities. We meet ... in Blackford, Perthshire to learn and play traditional music on fiddles and other instruments. BFG provides support to people as they learn and members are encouraged to help each other. We offer some basic tuition and sometimes hire tutors to help us. BFG plays to entertain others at ceilidhs, concerts and other events. Most people enjoy playing music no matter when they start learning. We try to make learning easy and good fun. Previous experience is not required; there are no tests or auditions. We teach people to play by ear but can also provide music books if you want one. We can even lend you a fiddle.’

'The Society's aim is to provide enjoyment and give people the chance to play in an orchestra. To playing members, amateur and professional alike, it offers the opportunity of being part of a full symphony orchestra, and the satisfaction of giving regular public concerts in a full-sized hall. To listening members, it offers the pleasure of varied concert programmes - classical, romantic, modern, popular, and sometimes adventurous - at a modest cost, in the most central venue in Perth. The orchestra also likes to give young professional musicians, formerly at Perth and Kinross schools, the chance to play as augmenters. Exceptionally talented young Perth professionals are invited to perform as soloists.'
