A premier Irish fiddler from Co. Longford, Marie Reilly performs with a unique and distinctive Leitrim fiddle style passed down through eight generations. Marie was born into a family steeped in Irish traditional music – Her grandfather, father and uncles all being distinctive fiddle players. The Anvil is a collection of some of the rarest and most delightful tunes of South Leitrim and Longford, a region with a distinctive fiddling tradition, passed down through eight generations.
