Event Details

Master fiddler Brendan Mulvihill learned music from many veterans of traditional music, starting with his own father National Heritage Fellow, Martin Mulvihill of County Limerick. He has been teaching Irish music and leading sessions in the Washington DC area for decades.

In his fiddle playing, Brendan’s strong tone, remarkable bow work and unsurpassed musicianship come from a deep love of the music and from a surprising influence. Though inspired by many traditional Irish musicians, Brendan also developed a passion for classical music.

Although he has recordings from his early music career, his recent work is intended to share music with those interested in learning more about the music. He published The Irish Scroll, a tune book with a CD, in 2013 sharing the first volume of Irish tunes, some rare, some with his own variations, and all worth learning. The newest release, The Journey, is a solo CD that demonstrates Brendan’s unique artistic appreciation of the music and the tradition.

For today’s performance he is joined by his friend and fellow-fiddler Daniel O’Brien.
