  • Description

    Athena is well know in the US as the critically acclaimed fiddler from the Broadway production of Riverdance. A San Francisco native, she has played fiddle nearly all her life. Winning the National Scottish Fiddling Championship in Virginia at age 11, she later turned her bow to the traditional music of Ireland. In collaborations with Laura Risk and Harry Bradley, in appearances with the Sharon Shannon band, and as the principal fiddler in Riverdance Broadway, Athena has distinguished herself as a musician of great scope, with influences ranging from Celtic traditional to jazz.

    This is Athena's solo debut and features musical contributions from John Doyle, Natalie Haas, Chico Huff, Billy McComiskey, Sharon Shannon and Ben Wittman. Produced by John Doyle (ex-Solas).
