Junior Fiddler of Dooney Fiddle Competition for Under-16s Sligo Live and CCÉ Sligo Town Branch jointly host the ‘Fiddler of Dooney'. The first of two days of intense competition will see the under 16 fiddlers compete for the Junior Fiddler of Dooney title. The competition was inaugurated in 1965 and is one of the oldest and most prestigious instrumental competitions in the tradition. Winners have come from all over the country and from traditional musicians based overseas. Competitors need not be tied to any rigid formula or to play in a Sligo style, although Sligo Live celebrates the Sligo style with its infectious lift. For more than a century there have been strong links between traditional music in Sligo and the U.S.A. To recognise and strengthen this bond, The Fiddler of Dooney has an adjudicator with strong bonds to the tradition in America. Brian Conway, Winifred Horan, Tony De Marco, Liz Carroll, Kevin Burke and Maurice Lennon have all filled that role. This year we are privileged to have Jesse Smith, originally from Baltimore, Maryland, and now living in Dublin, joining former winner Maeve Donnelly in judging the competition. Check out www.sligolive.ie for full information and an entry form.

Within another year, they were the biggest rock band yet seen in Ireland.”
