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.Further information and Tickets (for Kent) :
