Cairdeas na bhFidiléirí
The 36th Donegal Fiddle School with Cairdeas na bhFidiléiri Mon 2nd to Fri 6th Aug 2021
We have some fiddle classes available on the Zoom platform – If you are interested you need to register for the classes by Wed 28th July – e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings and enquiries. Unfortunately, Glencolmcille will not be awash with fiddle players from near and far – defying the biological need for occasional sleep again this year. Hopefully we will get back to “normal” in 2022. We will have a daily
programme of concerts/talks etc showing on our facebook pages. Full details of the schedule to follow.

Welcome to Cairdeas na bhFidiléirí, Our name means the ‘friendship or association of fiddle players’.
We formed our organisation in the early 1980’s to help support and promote the art of fiddle playing in the Donegal tradition. We operate as a not-for-profit voluntary organisation and we invest all of our income directly into our events, programmes, publications, projects and support for living artists. Our work is recognised by An Chomhairle Ealaíon/The Arts Council who provide vital financial support for our work.
Our mission statement is simple – we want to:
- strengthen Donegal fiddle playing at its roots
- improve standards of fiddle playing
- promote participation in all aspects of Donegal fiddle music
- encourage the transmission of the Donegal styles and repertoire
