Liz Doherty


Liz Doherty, traditional Irish fiddle player and renowned teacher, imparts what is best about Irish music - sheer fun and joy! She brings to her playing an exuberant

energy that is rhythmical and powerful.


"Liz's style remains firmly on the Donegal/Scotland/Cape Breton axis. Yet within that style lie many diverse elements, crazy cross-cut bowing and delicate, almost

dainty, contrasts all underpinned by a masterly technique, an ideal illustration of just how powerful the fiddle is in the hands of a maestro." (Pat Aherne, The Examiner)


Liz is a highly sought-after fiddle teacher at workshops and music camps internationally and offers online tuition through fiddleclinic.ie


Sh is co-director of the traditional music school, Scoil Trad Bhun Cranncha in County Donegal, with Jim Woods. Between 2015-2017 she established and launched the Acadamh Ceoil at Cultúrlann Uí Chanainn in Derry. She has been involved in international youth music projects such as the Strings Attached Project with Brian MacNeil at the Tonder Festival, Denmark (2010).
