"When Bronnie takes out her bow, you know she'll be playing with all the authenticity of the finest Irish fiddlers, but with a more strident sound, where the Old-Time undertones of her roots always come through."
Paul Duchene Portland Tribune
Bronnie Griffin is a contemporary fiddler
steeped in the rich Irish tradition. A prize winning student of the legendary Kevin Burke, Bronnie
learned her Irish from the best. With a classical training tempered by a sojourn in Bluegrass and Old Time playing she broadened her already considerable abilities after she went to the well of the tradition, and spent over ten years in Ireland busking and listening to the great tune
keepers and lore masters. She returned and played around the U.S., sharing the
stage with Gerry O'Beirne, Johnny B. Connolly, Nancy Conescu, John Williams and Kevin Burke, among others.
Today she lives in the musically rich and diverse city of Portland, Oregon,
where Celtic music flourishes, enriched by the vibrant and eclectic world
scene, all of which is reflected in Bronnie’s lively playing. With one stellar
album under her belt, and another forthcoming, Bronnie Griffin brings a strong
bow, melodic lift, and sheer joy to the world of traditional music.
