One of Ireland’s richest traditional heartlands, Donegal is also its closest county to Scotland, both geographically and musically. It’s also home to Capercaillie’s Manus Lunny, who curates a showcase of fellow Donegal artists he’s worked with in his multifaceted career, as a producer, composer, arranger and mentor to younger musicians. Theresa Kavanagh and Bríd Harper are leading exponents of Donegal’s world-famous fiddle tradition, while Martin Crossin is a true master craftsman whether playing or making the uilleann pipes. Gaeilge singer Emma Ní Fhíoruisce’s spine-tingling voice is equally at home in old folk ballads, original compositions, or translated pop covers that range from Marvin Gaye to Eagle Eye Cherry. Singer songwriter Ian Smith is originally from Kilmarnoch but has lived for most his life in Donegal. His songwriting skills are uniquely nurtured by his Scottish/Irish connections.
