About Fiddlecam

About Fiddlecam

Fiddlecam began as a side note; a unique way to document the world and playing the fiddle in it. It’s grown into a worldwide sensation, and I’m excited to, with your generous support, take it to new heights. Since I began making Fiddlecam videos, I’ve been overwhelmed with the support from community, and the inspiration and joy it’s been able to bring to others. As an Orcadian farm girl, spreading a joie de vivre for the outside brings me great joy. Personally, it has married my love for music and photography seamlessly. Support for Fiddlecam on Patreon will help me journey to more beautiful places, create higher quality content, and keep the boat afloat.

Behind the gopro

My name is Louise Bichan, I grew up in Orkney ('Orkney,' 'the Orkney Islands,' but definitely not 'The Orkneys,' if you ask the majority of Orcadians!), a group of islands in the north of Scotland. At home I learned the fiddle from Douglas Montgomery, and moved to Glasgow in 2007 to study photography at the Glasgow School of Art. After some years as a freelance fiddler and photographer, I relocated to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, to study with the likes of Bruce Molsky, Darol Anger, Matt Glaser and Joe K Walsh, graduating in 2019. You will now find me somewhere on the road, playing music with lots of brilliant musician friends, making stops along the way and roping them into playing a tune or two for Fiddlecam!

I play a beautiful fiddle made for me in 2002 by Orcadian violin maker Colin Tulloch, who you can read more about here: tullochviolins.com

Thank you for supporting me and helping me to continue doing what I love!
