The Friel Sisters

Anna, Sheila and Clare Friel are young traditional musicians born in Glasgow with their family roots firmly entrenched in the Donegal Gaeltacht (Derrynamansher). Being siblings, they achieve a close blend on fiddle, flute and uilleann pipes interspersed with songs sang in unison, many from their family and local repertoire.

 They have performed in various venues and festivals across Europe, America and Asia and have appeared as guests on stage or toured with acts such as Altan, The Chieftains, Lúnasa, The Máirtín O’Connor Trio, Cherish the Ladies, Solas and Fidil. Summer 2013 saw the girls record their debut album at their home in Donegal with guest musicians Gearoid Mooney, Seamus O’Kane and Griogair Labhruidh.  Now back with their new album  ‘Before The Sun ‘ being launched at their sell out concert in St Andrews In The Square on 20 January   2018
