Celtic Fiddle Festival at Celtic Connections 01.18.2014
Called "three of the finest folk violinists anywhere" by The Washington Post, Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations. Fiddlers Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian Lemaître (Brittany, France) and André Brunet (Quebec, Canada) showcase a fascinating juxtaposition of international and individual styles. Accompanying them is Nicolas Quemener, (Brittany, France) a master open-tuning guitarist.
On January 18th 2014 They performed live at the Old Fuitmarker, Glasgow, as part of the Celtic Connections programme. In tribute to founder Johnny Cunningham's memory, the legendary duo formed by brother Phil Cunningham on accordion and Aly Bain on fiddle also joined the supergroup in a hi-octane finale.
Lucky who was there!
