COYLE — Irish-fiddle champion Bronnie Griffin is on her way here for another show in the Concerts in the Woods series, and this time she’s bringing guitarists Nancy Conescu and Mike Doolin.
The Emerald Isle-style music will start at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center, 923 Hazel Point Road. Admission is by donation, and all ages are welcome.
After Griffin started playing fiddle at age 8, she traveled across and beyond the state, winning competitions such as the NorthWest Regional Fiddle Contest in Spokane. She was raised on old-time and bluegrass — traditional Americana — and then she met Kevin Burke, the man who is considered one of the finest Irish fiddlers alive.
Madly in love with Irish music, Griffin then moved to Ireland and stayed for 10 years, honing her skills in the triplets, rolls and other ornamentation of Celtic fiddling. Today, she is known for her particular brand of Irish fiddling, infused with her life experience.
