From Castlefinn, County Donegal, BrÃd is hailed asÂ one of the leading exponents of Irish traditional fiddle playing of our time. Encouraged by her parents and with musicÂ onÂ both sides of the family, BrÃd is carryingÂ onÂ the traditionÂ of fiddle playing. She has wonÂ numerous youth All Ireland titles and other prestigious fiddle awards including the Senior All Ireland, and Fiddler of Dooney.Â
Dermotâ€™s seemingly effortless playing, combined with great subtlety, and a faultless ear, makes himÂ one of the great accordionÂ players of his generation. He isÂ one of Irelandâ€™s foremost traditional musicians having been awarded the Irish TelevisionÂ station, TG4â€™s Traditional Musician of the Year 2013.Â
