From North Connemara, Liz and Yvonne Kane, known as The Kane Sisters are truly a dynamic duo, and much respected musicians and educators. Born in Letterfrack, they were educated in Kylemore Abbey School. First learning fiddle from their grandfather, local fiddle player Jimmy Mullen, and Sligo musician and teacher Mary Finn, the Kanes later spent three years touring with accordion player Sharon Shannon as part of her band "The Woodchoppers." Their first solo album was called "The Well Tempered Bow"; this was followed by "Under the Diamond", and just this past summer, "Side by Side". Both full-time fiddle teachers as well as touring performers, Liz and Yvonne succeed in combining their love of playing music with their desire to pass it on to others.
