World music record-breaking attempt delayed in Donegal

“This event, delayed until Spring 2022 due to Covid 19, will be one of the most historic single cultural events ever to take place in Donegal and will attract an immense local, national and international audience. It will be a feast of family fun, suitable for all ages, a huge fund-raiser to help worthy community-based charities.”

Fiddle Music in Donegal

Donegal’s fiddle playing tradition is one of the most distinctive in Irish traditional music, which developed in part due to the close relations between Donegal and Scotland.

For example, in addition to the standard tune types such as Jigs and Reels, the Donegal tradition also has Highlands, a very popular couple dance common in parts of Donegal. Many of the tunes used as highlands are originally Strathspeys which have been adapted to suit the local dancing needs.
