Bríd Harper is a fiddle player from County Donegal, who has been hailed as one of the leading Irish fiddle players of our time. Originally from Dublin, John Doyle is an acclaimed musician, singer and songwriter, who is renowned for playing the guitar left-handed in the most distinctive style. For several decades John has been resident in the USA, where he is a leading member of the globally revered, Irish American band ‘Solas’.
