Traditional Music

There is a long and vibrant fiddling tradition in South West Donegal. It is particularly strong and rich in Gleann Cholm Cille. In the early 1900s, there was, it is said, a fiddle in every house in the townland of Mín na Croise!

The local style is fast and attacking with little ornamentation. It may be heard throughout the year at seisiúin in private houses, pubs, and Foras Cultúir Uladh.
