Toner Quinn

Instruments: Fiddle

Toner Quinn is a fiddle player, writer, editor, publisher and lecturer. Born in Galway, he began learning fiddle with Tom Glackin and subsequently studied music in Waterford and publishing in Scotland. In 2000, he founded the Irish music publication Journal of Music, which won an Utne Independent Press Award for arts coverage. He has released a fiddle duet album with Malachy Bourke and has just published a collection of his writing, What Ireland Can Teach the World About Music, described by the Irish Times as ‘a formidable collection … Collecting so many well-argued pieces in one place underscores the heft of Quinn’s writing.’
