Paul Bradley - Fiddler,
Fiddle Maker & Poet
Living in Wicklow but originally from Bessbrook in County Armagh, Paul is a fiddler, fiddle maker and poet. He obtained a diploma in violin making, restoration and repair from the renowned Newark School of Violin Making in Nottingham, England.
Paul had some fiddle playing tuition from Josephine Keegan but is essentially a self-taught fiddler and produced his first album 'Atlantic Roar' (Tuaim na Fairraige) in 1998. The album earned a 5* review from the Irish Times.
As well as a full repair and restoration service Paul has a stock of old and new violins, violas and cellos which you can check out on the Paul Bradley Violins website.
