The Donegal Master Fiddlers concert is a celebration of the lifetime achievement of two of the county’s greatest living traditional fiddlers – Danny Meehan and Dinny McLaughlin. The concert will provide a rare opportunity to see several generations of leading Donegal fiddlers on stage at the same time.
In addition of having a chance to witness the larger than life personalities and distinctive fiddle styles of Danny and Dinny, there will be a host of other Donegal fiddlers who have been influenced by them.
This feast of traditional Irish music will also feature Dinny McLaughlin’s group (Dinny, Clodagh Warnock, Edel Mc Laughlin and Roisin Harrigan)and Fidil featuring Ciarán O’ Maonaigh and Aidan O’Donnell.
The opening performance will come from the 12 piece multi-instrumental group Coirm, an emerging, younger generation of musicians drawn from Paul Harrigan’s Ceol na Coille music school.
