The Celtic Fiddle Festival

Sunday, April 23, 2017

The Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations. The quartet, which includes Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian Lemaître (Brittany), Charlie McKerron (Scotland), and Nicolas Quemener combines considerable talents, rich musical traditions, and spontaneous humor for an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace. Each artist plays a solo set, showcasing their individual musical styles and cultural heritage, followed by a collaborative set featuring all three fiddlers. Called "three of the finest folk violinists anywhere" by The Washington Post, these traditional masters showcase their regional repertoires, and together conjure an unforgettable performance, playing with such relentless precision and fire. The tunes transcend all cultural and geographical barriers. Doors open at 6 p.m. with beer and wine for sale.
