The Celtic Fiddlers
Folk \ Celtic \ Roots
The Celtic Fiddlers (1993) based out of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, are a vibrant group of 9 young professional musicians, ages 15-29. Their repertoire consists of vocal and instrumental selections of the Newfoundland and Irish genre.
This unique group of fiddlers is accompanied by piano, mandolin, mandola, Irish flute, bodhran, cajone, accordion, banjo, bouzouki, bass, voice, guitar and drums. They have gained an outstanding reputation for their eclectic style and presentation.
Under the direction of Korona Brophy, musician, arranger and teacher, the Celtic Fiddlers, perform at a wide milieu of international, national and provincial conventions and festivals, local folk festivals and events, celebrations and weddings.
The Fiddlers are thrilled to announce their 27th anniversary this year!
In July, 2020, the fiddlers start off their summer events with a performance tour of Newfoundland and New York. They have a busy summer with shows and corporate events, workshops, weddings and festivals.
The Fiddlers have toured Ireland for five performance tours. They were invited to festivals in Dublin, Galway, Tralee, Ennis, New Ross and Waterford, and performed for audiences worldwide. Their travels and shows have taken them to parts of Canada, The US and all over our wonderful province!
