Hawk’s Well Theatre

Sligo Fiddle Project

Sligo traditional musicians filled the dance halls of New York in the 20’s and 30’s and made some of the most magnificent recordings of Irish music to date. Celebrating the Sligo fiddle repertoire, Oisín MacDiarmada brings together a number of its finest exponents in this very special concert, 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. A new publication of Sligo fiddle tunes, 'Fiddlers of Sligo Tunebook', by Daithí Gormley & Oisín will also be launched on the night.
