Sisters Anna, Sheila and Clare Friel were born in Glasgow, but their family roots lie in Donegal Gaeltacht in northwest Ireland. They sing and play violin, flute and uilleann pipes, and, with that particular musical affinity that only siblings can produce, they bear traditional Irish folk music to the world. The Friel Sisters have performed all over Europe, America and Asia and toured with Altan, The Chieftains, Lunasa and Sharon Shannon. Their debut album The Friel Sisters from 2013 attracted interest and fine reviews. In 2016, the trio won the Trophée Loic Raison award at the Festival Interceltique de Lorient in Britanny. Their next album, Before the Sun, from 2018, drew even more appreciation and had a 4-star review in The Irish Times. Fiddler Clare Friel won the Young Musician of the Year prize in Ireland in 2018. Their only Danish festival concert in 2022.
