Powerful Irish trad music with fiery double fiddles, soulful pipes and stirring vocals that evoke in listeners the craic and spirit of Ireland.

Biography

Irish music carries an emotional force that is both powerful and undeniable. Whether you’re listening to a giddily winding dance tune or a heart-piercing emigration ballad, the visceral effect lingers on well after the notes themselves dissolve. I'd like to introduce you to Music in the Glen, Atlanta’s finest traditional Irish ensemble. Between our five members, there are a host of instruments represented—fiddles, uilleann pipes, bouzouki, bodhrán (traditional goat-skin drum), guitar, whistle, concertina and voice. And to keep things exciting, we mix in some Irish step dancing for good measure choreographed by champion Irish step dancers.

We've played a myriad of festivals, private parties, weddings and concert halls throughout the Southeast. Make this season special by adding uilleann pipes, fiddles, song and dance—wow your audience with a special Irish treat!
