21 Apr Irish Performer Niamh Ní Charra Making A Mariposa Appearance
From County Kerry in the south west of Ireland, Niamh Ní Charra was strongly influenced by the wealth of local Sliabh Luachra musicians.
She started playing at the early age of four, and has gone on to become a multiple award winning fiddle and concertina player.
Niamh toured for eight years as a soloist with Riverdance before returning to Ireland in 2006. Since then, she has toured extensively as a solo artist and with her band, and has performed and recorded with The Chieftains and with Carlos Núñez.
Her recordings have garnered high critical acclaim, and music journalists on both sides of the Atlantic have praised her work.
We are very pleased to welcome this celebrated Irish to our Mariposa Folk Festival stage.
