The Friel Sisters

Festival Details - "The Friel Sisters"...

Start: Saturday, November 18, 2023 6:00PM
End: Saturday, November 18, 2023 8:00PM

The Friel Sisters, Anna, Sheila, and Clare Friel are traditional musicians born and brought up in Glasgow with their family roots firmly entrenched in the Donegal Gaeltacht in Northwest Ireland. They play a mixture of music interspersed with songs in English and Irish, many from their family repertoire. Being siblings, they achieve a close blend on fiddle, flute and uilleann pipes. They have released two albums thus far, playing all over the world in various venues and festivals, and have appeared onstage and toured with acts such as Altan, The Chieftains, Lúnasa, Sharon Shannon, The Máirtín O’Connor Trio, Cherish the Ladies and Solas. The girls have won many prestigious titles and competitions over the years, most recently Clare receiving the huge honour of TG4 Young Musician of the Year/Ceoltóir Óg na Bliana. The Friel Sisters will be joined by Marty Barry, guitar player and singer from Banbridge, Co Down and Cathal Ó Curráin, bouzouki player and singer from GaothDobhair, near the girl’s family home in Donegal, who was recently awarded BestEmerging Artist for 2022 at the RTÉ Folk Awards in Dublin.
