Celtic Fiddle Festival is Kevin Burke (Ireland) • Christian Lemaître (Brittany) • Charlie McKerron (Scotland) • Nicolas Quemener (Brittany, France).
Called “three of the finest folk violinists anywhere” by The Washington Post, The Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations. In concert each artist plays a solo set, showcasing their individual musical styles and cultural heritage, followed by a collaborative set featuring all three fiddlers. Sold-out tours and standing ovations give testimony to the electricity and excitement generated by the group. The quartet combines their considerable talents, rich musical traditions, and spontaneous humor for an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace. These traditional masters showcase their regional repertoires, and together conjure an unforgettable performance, playing with such relentless precision and fire, that the tunes transcend all cultural and geographical barriers. The joyous journey continues with their latest CD, Storm in a Teapot, available from Loftus Music .
