Donegal Fiddlers

Introduction to Biographies

These short biographical notes are not meant to be definitive articles, nor a who's who of Donegal fiddling. Instead, they are short notes on some of the important figures in Donegal fiddle playing. If a fiddle player is not featured here it does not mean that they are not considered highly enough to be included; additional biographical notes will be added from time to time.
