For twenty years North Carolina-native violinist/fiddler Andrew Finn Magill has been pursuing parallel careers in traditional Irish music, Brazilian choro, jazz and American fiddle. Magill learned from the best fiddlers in the world at The Swannanoa Gathering and has gone on to record and perform with many of them including Liz Carroll and Martin Hayes. He is a Fulbright fellow, North Carolina Arts Council Fellow, and Ropeadope Recording artist and has been featured on MTV, Avianca in-flight entertainment and multiple times on NPR's The Thistle & Shamrock. His 2016 album Roots (featuring Cillian Vallely of Lúnasa and John Doyle) debuted at number #46 on the folk DJ charts and since then he has toured internationally and headlined several Irish festivals. He has performed with everyone from grammy-nominees John Doyle and Trio Brasileiro to Rising Appalachia. In 2020, he released the EP "Half Light" with former Paul McKenna Bandmate Seán Gray and the album "Murray & Magill" with singer and guitar & bouzouki-player Alan Murray (The Four Winds). Magill also has projects with Irish singer Dave Curley, an original jazz quartet, and several Brazilian projects, all of which can be found on his website.
