Sun 27th July

The Regional Cultural Centre in association with Earagail Arts Festival present The Donegal Master Fiddlers – EAF 2014 Closing Concert.
The Donegal Master Fiddlers gala concert is a celebration of the life and music of three of the county’s greatest living traditional fiddlers – Vincent Campbell, Dinny McLaughlin and Danny Meehan – while featuring a film tribute to a fourth great Donegal fiddler, Tommy Peoples. Each Master Fiddler will be introduced in turn by a younger renowned fiddler, Vincent Campbell by Martin Mc Ginley, Danny Meehan by Aiden O’Donnell and Dinny McLaughlin by Roisin Harrigan.

This feast of traditional Irish music will also feature the Campbells (Vincent, his brother Jimmy and nephew Peter), Dinny McLaughlin’s group and Fidil the new generation of Donegal fiddlers ( Aidan O’Donnell and Damien McGeehan).

The opening performance of this incredible night of music will come from an even younger generation of musicians drawn from the Ceol na Coille School of Irish Traditional Music.
