Home > News > Donegal’s Musical Dohertys at Pavee Point
People got a real feel for Donegal’s Musical Doherty’s thanks to the in-depth talk by Rab Cherry of Donegal Fiddle Music who presented at Pavee Point this week. And thanks to those who attended and who travelled to be at the event especially Donegal Traveller Project.
The talk, based on the family tree of Doherty musicians,
told the story of renowned fiddle player Johnny Doherty’s ancestors, as well as
his siblings and nephews and nieces. Some of his relations were also in attendance
at the event and were able to compare notes with Rab.
And we look forward to the future release of some new-found recordings of fiddler Mickey Doherty recorded in 1960 by Mickey’s nephew.
