The 40th Annual Glenties Fiddle Concert (Door opens 7:30pm) featuring Aidan O'Donnell, Peter Campbell, Michéal Cherry, Catriona & Sinead Kennedy and other guests.

Cost : €15

A concert celebrating 40 years of Cairdeas na bhFidiléirí working to maintain and develop Donegal's great traditional fiddle playing traditions. We have a special emphasis this year on fiddle players who are not old enough to have been at the very first event. We began our efforts to preserve the fiddle playing traditions in Donegal because at the time in the early 1980's the future was not looking too good. There were very few young people beginning to play and a dearth of events which fiddle fans would gather at, to play and hear this sort of wonderful music.
