Donegal Fiddle Players

Great video from TnaG (the Irish language TV station) about fiddle playing in the county. Hosted by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh of the band Altan. The show is in Irish with English sub-titles. It's well worth watching (or listening to).

"As their second album, The Old Wheel of Fortune, demonstrates, the three members of Fidil, Aidan O’Donnell, Ciarán Ó Maonaigh and Damien McGeehan, all in their mid-twenties, combine the drive of traditional Donegal repertoire with innovative and effective use of less orthodox effects, such as strumming, pizzicato or percussive slapping."
