Itchy Fingers - Introducing Rowan Leslie

We are proud to offer the debut CD of Rowan Leslie, a young fiddler from Broughshane, near Ballymena, who was tutored by the now world-touring local traditional virtuoso Johnny Murphy. Rowan played for a couple of years with the Derry and Antrim Fiddlers and then went on to study violin technique with John McKernan of the Ulster Orchestra and Baroque violinist, Rebekah Durston. Over the last seven years, Rowan has been playing with Johnny Murphy and also with piano player, Rose Murray. He is joined on this album by Rose, who accompanies him throughout, and by Johnny who duets with him on a couple of tracks.
