Music is a way of life in Donegal with most people playing an instrument or several. Many visitors carry their instruments with them when they travel and head straight for one of the pubs to join a session.
Donegal fiddle players hosts some of the best traditional players in Ireland. I was fortunate to spend the summer in Glencomcille and got to witness many of these players in the pubs in and around this small village. I also fortunate to see the annual Fiddle Week where fiddle players come to teach around 100 people from around the world. Now that in itself was an amazing experience.
Here are some of my favourite images. As they say…it’s for the craic!
