Mná na bhFidleacha - The Donegal Female Fiddlers
The fiddle has long been associated with County Donegal, but apart from a few relatively well-known, a large cohort of the female fiddlers of the county have remained hidden in the background.
This extraordinary concert brings together, for the first time, 13 of the finest female fiddlers either from Donegal, associated with Donegal or residing in Donegal. It represents a mere tip of the iceberg of a huge quantity of quality female fiddlers around the county and just the start of a Donegal female fiddle showcasing revolution!
The lineup for today’s special lunchtime concert is Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Bríd Harper, Liz Doherty, Roisin McGrory (Harrigan), Clare Friel, Melanie Houton, Theresa Kavanagh, Aisling Drost-Byrne, Tara Connaghan, Denise Boyle, Claire Gallagher, Clódagh Warnock and Eimear McColgan.
