From Castlefinn, County Donegal, Bríd is hailed as one of the leading exponents of Irish traditional fiddle playing of our time. Encouraged by her parents and with music on both sides of the family, Bríd is carrying on the tradition of fiddle playing. She has won numerous youth All Ireland titles and other prestigious fiddle awards including the Senior All Ireland, and Fiddler of Dooney.
Dermot’s seemingly effortless playing, combined with great subtlety, and a faultless ear, makes him one of the great accordion players of his generation. He is one of Ireland’s foremost traditional musicians having been awarded the Irish Television station, TG4’s Traditional Musician of the Year 2013.
