On Sunday the 12th of November, we have a very special concert taking place at the theatre. Celebrating the Sligo fiddle repertoire, renowned traditional musician, Oisín MacDiarmada brings together a number of its finest exponents including John Carty, Seamie O’Dowd, Caoimhe Kearins (Fiddler of Dooney Winner 2017), Verona Ryan, Fiona Doherty along with the newly formed Sligo Fiddle Ensemble.

Oisín is one of three recipients of a Hawk's Well Theatre Time at the Well residency in 2017. This performing artist support scheme offers short residency opportunities to practising performance artists who wish to focus on a particular project or aspect of their practice. During his residency, Oisín focused create an educational structure to support the development of fiddle playing in the Sligo region. He ran two fiddle workshops at the theatre in Autumn and has also set up a new collective of fiddle players, the Sligo Fiddle Ensemble.
This upcoming concert will be a culmination of this enthusiasm and energy and will be an unmissable concert for all those interested in the world-renowned Sligo fiddle style.
