The 36th Annual Glenties Fiddlers Weekend
Fri 5th – Sun 7th, Oct 2018

This is a major gathering of fiddle players established in 1983 and held in The Highlands Hotel, Glenties on the first weekend in October. This popular event is for anyone interested in fiddle music and the formal programme includes classes, a concert with special guest fiddle players, talks and occasional recitals. The Friday night is always the occasion for some great fiddle music as players from all over Ireland arrive in Glenties for the weekend.

Workshops for persons who have already achieved a level of playing are provided during the course of the weekend.
