About Filidhean

String duo
Filidhean is a Celtic fusion band that incorporates pop and tango elements into their original music.

The Celtic fusion band Filidhean was formed in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by violinist Allison Stringer (Canada) and cellist, Elena Kopteva (Russia). Brought together by their love of Celtic music, the duo incorporates original music with Scottish, Irish, Newfoundland and Basque tunes. Filidhean was formed with the concept of musical narrative through the inclusion of folklore and history paired with cohesive musical selections. Their repertoire is of new and old tunes that connects the vividness of traditional music and the mastery of instrumental ensemble and skill in order to explore new ways of transmitting musical storytelling to the public. The duo has performed across The Netherlands, most notably to a packed house at De Doelen’s Grote Zaal, Rotterdam. All tunes are original and/or arranged by Filidhean.
