Manus McGuire is an acclaimed Irish fiddle player whose exceptional musical gift became widely recognised in 1970 when he won the prestigious Fiddler of Dooney, an Irish national fiddle competition at age 14.
He has performed with Buttons and Bows, Moving Cloud, Brock McGuire Band, and with his brother Seamus McGuire.
McGuire is honoured to have been voted Male Irish Traditional Musician of the Year in the U.S in 2006 by the Irish American News in Chicago and to have received the Bravo Award from Trad Magazine in France in 2007.
Manus continues to perform and teach fiddle music at the highest level.
Manus will be accompanied by Ben Stephenson, a multi-instrumentalist who has risen to become one of Australia’s most sought-after Irish musicians. An accomplished Irish flute and bodhran player, Ben is also a member of the acclaimed Australian Irish Trad Band Trouble In The Kitchen.
