Fidil

One of the finest albums to emerge from Ireland in the last decade.

– Songlines

Fidil are a fiddle trio from Co. Donegal, Ireland.

They are rapidly forging a reputation for exhilarating and challenging music that draws on the rich heritage of their native place and the famous fiddle style unique to this region.

Utilising several playing techniques such as strumming, fingerstyle, and percussion, Fidil are pioneering a truly original, fresh and exciting sound in the field of world music and in the ancient music of their homeland. Their music making is marked by an intricate and intelligent approach but most importantly, still manages to maintain and respect the element of fiery exuberance that is the hallmark of traditional fiddle music from Donegal. This is music for the 21st century – mindful of its origins but breathtakingly exciting in its ambition and delivery.

The band formed in late 2008 when Aidan O’Donnell and Ciarán O’ Maonaigh invited Damien McGeehan along to perform with them at the launch of their duet album, entitled ‘Fidil’. Although the trio had already played in numerous impromptu sessions together, they soon discovered a new chemistry when they sat down and began exploring each others individual influences and interests. After only a few months of playing together as a unit, they were awarded the ‘Young Musicwide Award’ by Music Network and started touring internationally, which to date has included performances in the UK, U.S.A, Canada and also extensively in mainland Europe.




A trio of undeniable range, vision, and chops.
