  • Biography Aurora discovered her love of traditional Irish music upon moving to Seattle, from California. She enjoys listening to (and playing along with) recordings of Clare-based fiddlers such as Paddy Canny, P.J. Hayes, James Kelly, and Martin Hayes. Several years ago she was drawn to the slow airs, since these beautiful melodies are older than most reels and jigs. From 2008 - 2010 she competed at the All-Ireland Fleadh (the Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann) in Tullamore, Ireland, where in 2009 she placed second in the Fiddle Slow Air competition. She is an experienced fiddle teacher with numerous students age 10 - adult in the Seattle area.
