THE GRAND SOCIAL
TUESDAY 27TH SEPTEMBER
"A trio of undeniable range, vision, and chops… compelling the listener to ponder a rich, rewarding sonic palette produced by three fiddles and nothing else. Enchantment inevitably follows."
Earle Hitchner, Irish Echo 2010
Music Network is delighted to announce a concert by Fidil with acclaimed sean nós singer Nell Ní Chróinín on Tuesday 27 September at 9pm in The Grand Social, 35 Lower Liffey Street, Dublin 1. Comprising three fiddlers (Ciarán Ó Maonaigh, Aidan O'Donnell and Damien McGeehan) Fidil won Music Network’s Young Music wide Award in 2008 and have since released the critically acclaimed album ‘3’. Tickets priced €15 / €13 (concession only on the door, subject to availability) can be booked on 01 677 0262 (Claddagh Records) or www.entertainment.ie (booking fee applies). This concert is promoted by Music Network and The Liffey Banks Sessions.
Fidil explore the soundscape of their native Donegal, and through their unconventional approach to accompaniment, arrive at a place where tradition meets innovation, giving the group their unmistakable sound. Their music-making is marked by an intricate and intelligent approach that still manages to maintain the element of fiery exuberance that is the hallmark of traditional fiddle music from Donegal. This is traditional music for the 21st century, mindful of its origins but breathtakingly exciting in its ambition and delivery. The trio have quickly established themselves as stars in the ascendant, scooping up the Music Network’s Young Musicwide Award in 2008, with which they have been busy playing concerts on home ground, and more recently in Macedonia, Iceland and Nova Scotia. The trio’s debut CD ‘3’ was released in 2009 and hailed as, “a masterclass in the marriage of tradition and musical exploration, and a milestone in traditional music” (The Irish Times).
