About this event

Mary Bergin

‘Just about the best Tin Whistle player this century’ is how the Irish Times referred to Mary in a recent interview. She was born into a very musical family and began playing at an early age winning many awards in Oireachtas and Fleadh Ceoil competitions, including the All-Ireland Championships at Junior and Senior level.

Mary’s first solo album ‘Feadóga Stáin’ brought out in 1979, holds its place as a classic in latter- day traditional music. Her second solo one in 1992 was referred to as having Biblical status with fans of Celtic music.

She has toured extensively in Europe, America and in Australia playing in concerts and festivals, and giving workshops and seminars. She has also given masterclasses in many Universities around the world.

In 1990, Mary, together with musicians Kathleen Loughnane and Dearbhaill Standun, formed the group ‘Dordan’ whose particular and distinctive mix of traditional Irish and European baroque music has achieved wide acclaim, receiving the National Entertainment Award for traditional music in 1993. Dordan have recorded four albums.

In 2000, Mary herself won the prestigious ‘Traditional Musician of the Year' Award.
