This Irish-American Musician Will Knock You Out with His Unique Sound

Andrew Magill has straddled the tenuous line of fiddler and violinist for the better part of his thirty years. This Sunday, decide for yourself which one the talented Irish musician falls under when Magill performs live at Highland Coffees in Baton Rouge. Don’t miss it!

Raised in an Irish musical household in Asheville, North Carolina Andrew “Finn the Fiddler” Magill grew up studying with many of the world’s best traditional American and Irish fiddlers at The Swannanoa Gathering music workshops. At age 18, his debut album Drive & Lift was featured multiple times on NPR and his 2016 two-disc project Roots and Branches debuted at #46 on the Folk DJ charts.

Finn has built his career on Irish music having performed with John Doyle, Liz Carroll, the Paul McKenna Band, and Martin Hayes among many other Irish luminaries. He currently has a duo with Irish multi-instrumentalist Dave Curley which performs the festival circuit and concerts all over the U.S. Between this project and more he has performed at Milwaukee Irish Fest, Celtic Connections, the Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival, the Austin Celtic Festival and hundreds of venues.

Finn has also taught Irish fiddle, bluegrass, old-time and Brazilian choro at more than a dozen fiddle camps across the world including: Montana Fiddle Camp, Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, The Freight & Salvage’s Fiddlekids, O’Flaherty Irish Music Youth Camp, Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp, The Acadia Trad School, Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamp, The Swannanoa Gathering’s Celtic and Fiddle weeks, Old Songs, and Culture & Projet Stages de Musiques et Danse de Bretagne et du Monde.

Lend an ear to one of today’s most notable Irish musicians when you catch Andrew Finn Magill live in concert on Sunday, January 20th. Magill will perform alongside Dave Curley. This is an all ages show.
