Heralded as “three of the finest folk violinists anywhere”, the group Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations. Fiddlers Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian Lemaître (Brittany, France) and Charlie McKerron (Scotland) showcase a fascinating juxtaposition of international and individual styles. Sold-out tours and standing ovations give testimony to the electricity and excitement the group generates.

Joined by acclaimed guitarist Nicolas Quemener from Brittany, as a quartet their talents, musical traditions, and spontaneous humour are combined for an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace. These traditional masters showcase their regional repertoires, conjuring up a memorable display of breathtaking performances.
