THE great Ardara fiddler John Doherty is rightly lauded as one of the greatest players to have ever lived.
From a famous clan of Travellers who worked as horse dealers and tinsmiths, John travelled the country playing impromptu performances. He died in 1980 aged 80.
In this video – made in 1971 – John plays the Hare and the Hounds. Enjoy.Tags:
