There’s a little treat in store for anyone going to the Boars Head for 6pm this evening. A traditional Irish music group of international renown will be stopping in to play some tunes as part of their Irish tour.
‘The Celtic Fiddlers’ will also be playing at the Fleadh Ceoil and the Rose of Traleee while they are here in Ireland. The group hails from Newfoundland, an area of Canada that is well known for its Irish roots and lingering accents. Newfoundland even has the distinction of having a gaeltacht area.
They’re an award winning troupe of fiddlers who are accompanied by piano, mandolin, mandola, tin whistle, bodhran, cajone, bouzouki, bass, guitar, drums, and we believe one of them plays a mean kitchen sink.
Here they are welcoming people to St. John’s airport.
You can catch them play live from 6pm in The Boars Head on capel street this evening Thursday the 18th of August.
