Mary Bergin – ‘Just about the best Tin Whistle player this century’ is how the Irish Times referred to Mary in a recent interview. She was born into a very musical family and began playing at an early age winning many awards in Oireachtas and Fleadh Ceoil competitions, including the All-Ireland Championships at Junior and Senior level.
Mary’s first solo album ‘Feadóga Stáin’ brought out in 1979, holds its place as a classic in latter- day traditional music. Her second solo one in 1992 was referred to as having Biblical status with fans of Celtic music.
