Profile:

Ireland’s Fiddlers Green are first and foremost professional Irish singers and musicians with a very strong passion for the musical folklore that has been handed down through generations. Their vocal and musical presentation both in recordings and live performances demonstrates their ability to provide the best Irish entertainment for both Irish and foreign audiences.
The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem were the first real Ambassadors to bring Irish folk and ballad singing to a world audience, and were also the instigators for the formation of bands like Fiddlers Green in the early 1980’s.

The abundance of Irish songs that tell stories, paint pictures and relate to Irish history over many centuries can be heard in the live Fiddlers Green performance. With the lead singer Danny Carthy, the original member also providing a number of his own songs written and composed over many decades, as well as his Guitar and vocal harmony accompaniment in his live performance. Danny’s success with his song Carlingford in France which was translated and recorded to French in Dublin by singer Renaud in 2009 with a complete CD of mostly Irish folk songs. The Album title was Molly Malone and in December of the same year it was the no 1 CD in France with sales to date in the re gion of 200,000 CD’s.
In 2002 Danny Carthy was invited to Aras an Uachtarain by President Mary McAleese as a tribute to Irish entertainers.

Also performing with Danny is the very versatile John the Deego Kid presenting excellent vocal, musical and harmony arrangements which includes Acoustic Bass and Guitar. John has performed with singers like Patsy Watchorn who is now lead singer with the Dubliners. Adding the finishing touches to the band is the virtuoso Banjo and Mandolin player Owen Hackett presenting superb musical accompaniment with hand clapping, feet stomping reels and jigs. Winning three all Ireland Fleadh Ceol medals on the Banjo shows his true accomplishments as a musician.
The importance of good folk songs and music for children is the reason for the formation of The Twitters.
Being able to sing is one of the most natural musical instruments we have at our disposal our vocal chords.
