I saw the talented Merle Harbron on the ceilidh trail in the summer of 2016. The band gel to create a bouncing night. Ceilidh was brilliant.

I performed with Merle in Akhaltsikhe, Republic of Georgia in summer 2017. Merle is one of the most versatile fiddle players I have come across. She is a natural performer and an absolute pleasure to listen to and play music with!
