Celtic Fiddle Festival

Celtic Fiddle Festival mark twenty years of joyful, compelling, and powerful music with their sixth recording, Live in Brittany. Described as “three sensational fiddlers from three distinct Celtic traditions” by the Boston Herald, the group features Kevin Burke, a giant of Irish music; renowned fiddler Christian Lemaître (Kornog) from Brittany, France; and sensational young Quebecois musician André Brunet (De Temps Antan, La Bottine Souriante). Called “three of the finest folk violinists anywhere” by The Washington Post, Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations.

Along with acclaimed guitarist Nicolas Quemener from Brittany, the quartet combines their talents, musical traditions, and spontaneous humor for an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace. In concert, each artist plays a solo set, showcasing his individual musical styles and traditions, followed by a collaborative set featuring all four musicians. Together, they play with such relentless precision and fire that the tunes transcend all cultural and geographical barriers, leaving the audience with a memorable musical experience.
