Welcome to the Baltimore Fiddle Fair Website

"Congratulations, big time, on what was for me one of the more enjoyable events of music I have been to in a while, just outstanding. I can't tell you how much I was thrilled with it."
--Brian O'Donovan, Celtic Connections
"Congrats on another savage weekend, best festival in Ireland..by far!"
--Siobhan Peoples
"WOW! Baltimore rocks! BFF2007 exceeded all my expectations - the concerts were breathtaking, the pub sessions were incredible and the workshops inspirational - thanks Declan and your team for a brilliant event!"
--Alison, attendee
"Very well done to Declan and all the people involved. I Will be coming back next year and I'll be bringing half a dozen friends with me. The best music I've heard in a long time."
--Iain O'Neill, attendee
"The Fiddle Fair has now firmly established itself as one of the premier opportunities to help encourage and develop the talents of budding fiddle players from Ireland and abroad."
--Irish Music Rights Organisation
"How on earth do I get hold of a ticket for next year's festival?"
--Phil Thomas, FolkMusic.net
"The standard and talent of all the musicians took my breath away. Thanks for such a magical weekend and I look forward to returning ... for a top up of pure heaven."
--Wendy Jane Lichtblau, attendee
"The Baltimore Fiddle Fair is unique. Whether listening through an open window to the children at an open-air workshop master a tune or the swirl of a master-fiddler in the early hours, Baltimore weaves a sweet melody. Beir bua!"
--John Creedon, The Creedon Show RTE Radio 1
"I just came back home from Baltimore. I just wanted to thank you for giving us such a wonderful festival."
--Fumihiko Akamine, attendee
"You can't ask for a nicer setting, or a more interesting lineup. Declan knows bigger isn't necessarily better ... everyone feels at home."
--Tim O'Brien, 2006 Grammy Winner





Hello and Welcome to Fiddle Fair 2018

Following on from our 25th anniversary in 2017 we are absolutely thrilled with our line-up for this year. We welcome back some old friends, some all-time favourites, and some amazing folk who have never been here before. With another couple of names to be announced during the coming days, our Schedule page will be under construction as we add bios, photos, and links so come back often to check that out in a few days.

We sincerely hope you'll agree that our line-up is extraordinary and we look forward to seeing you in May.
