Celtic Fiddle Festival UK Tour - May 2015

The group Celtic Fiddle Festival are undertaking a UK tour in May 2015. Two decades ago, in 1993, they released their first CD. In 2013, the group celebrated their 20th anniversary with tours on both sides of the Atlantic and the release of “Live in Brittany” on the Loftus Music label.

The inspiration behind the formation of the Celtic Fiddle Festival has proven to be an innovative and enduring concept – to highlight the unique qualities of the three distinct fiddle traditions while at the same time showing the strength and power that can be generated when they come together.

According to the press release “The group 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. Along with acclaimed guitarist Nicholas Quéméner from Brittany, the quartet combines their talents, musical traditions, and spontaneous humour for an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace. These traditional masters showcase their regional repertoires and together conjure an experience of breathtaking performances.”
