First Through the Gate: Brian Conway

In his long-awaited, solo debut, Irish-American fiddler Brian Conway performs with a skill, grace, and force that are steeped in tradition but distinctively his own. Well known in the New York Irish/Celtic community, Conway has won numerous fiddling competitions. Nothing is missed in Brian Conway’s Sligo style of fiddling. From hop jigs to hornpipes, and highlands to slow airs, Conway preserves and passes along the best of the past while melding it with the talent and imagination of the present.
