Hello and Welcome to Fiddle Fair 2017

Hello and Welcome to Fiddle Fair 2017

It sure is hard to believe that it is 25 years since we got the notion to have a little Fiddle Festival in a tiny village in West Cork and we certainly did not think back then that we'd be here today announcing a world-class line up of national and international acts to celebrate our 25th anniversary.

We are delighted to welcome back some old friends, some all-time favourites and some who have never been here before and we hope you'll agree that our line-up is truly extraordinary.

Special mention goes out to 'Waterboy' Mr. Steve Wickham who is the only artist here this year who performed at the very first Fiddle Fair back in 1992. Welcome back Steve!

I'm sure some of you were here then, I know myself and Liam Cotter were, and I look forward to hearing your memories over these 5 days in May.

See you soon,

Declan
