In Conversation With Liz Doherty

Liz Doherty has recently performed at the National Folk Festival as part of Fintan Vallely's production, 'Companach - the History of Irish Music.'

Recent collaborations have been with Candian fiddler/trumpet player, Daniel Lapp, at Celtic Colours International Festival (2016), with Ulster University students (as The Doc Flock); she has also performed alongside Liz Carroll, Mairead Ní Mhaonaigh, Catriona MacDonald, Annbjorg Lien, Liz Knowles and Emma Hardelin in the String Sisters since 2010.

A revolutionary new system to support traditional music teachers has been launched by Donegal fiddler, academic and traditional music teacher Dr. Liz Doherty.   I Teach Trad combines a specialised system with a customised set of resources for planning, organising and delivering traditional music teaching.

Her new system has already come in for high praise from key figures in the trad music scene.  Fintan Vallely, PhD, musician, writer and teacher has described I Teach Trad as a “formidable expression of teaching logic and system.”
