Fiddlers Various 2009 - Tommy Peoples
South East of England, 2009 :
Master Irish fiddler Tommy Peoples from Donegal has again accepted an invitation from Beau of KentFolk and Valmai of The Lewes Saturday Folk Club to visit the South East of England in the Autumn of 2009, as a Fiddlers Various special event.
Tommy Peoples is, quite simply, a living legend, the greatest exponent of the driving Donegal style which is his hallmark. Tommy Peoples was an early member of the Bothy Band , and has recorded numerous CDs (discography: a , b ). His remarkable self-produced CD " The Quiet Glen " (1998) earned him Ireland's highest accolade as "Traditional Musician of the Year", the first person to be so honoured by the Irish Government. In spite of this he is an intensely modest man.

When you hear Tommy, you
know you are being taken on a journey ...
its about reaching some part of the music that only Tommy can go ....
