Fiddler's Fancy was founded in 1997 to showcase the talents of Celtic musicians and dancers in venues varying from fairs, festivals and weddings to hotel ballrooms and living rooms. These experienced performers have performed at venues ranging from pubs, restaurants and major festivals, to wedding celebrations for Jerry Garcia and the Alioto family.

Fiddler's Fancy can provide musicians for your party, festival, faire, wedding or wake: solo, duos, trios, a quartet, a quintet, or a Celtic Rock Band.
