Ciara Ní Bhriain

Instruments: Fiddle | Harp

Born into a musical Dublin family, Ciara Ní Bhriain started learning violin at the tender age of three. Parents Mick and Fidelma encouraged Ciara and her siblings to enjoy both their classical music studies and traditional Irish music, which they heard regularly at home.

Now recognised internationally as a performer, Ciara has toured with artists including Birkin Tree, Carlos Nunez, and Frankie Gavin and the Provenance. She also spent two years as resident performer at Raglan Road, in Disneyland Florida.

More recently, Ciara featured as soloist with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, performing The Princess Grace Suite, composed by Frankie Gavin. A little closer to home, Ciara has toured Ireland with Johnny Óg Connolly, performing his composition, An Cosán Draíochta.

Ciara is currently studying Audio Production and Music Project Management at Dublin’s Sound Training College. She continues to teach both fiddle and harp, including for DCU at St Patrick’s Campus. She can regularly be heard on Irish radio and television, most recently appearing on TG4’s Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy.
