Tommy Peoples is a fiddler from County Donegal (born in 1948), where he spent his early years immersed in the style which remains his today. As a teenager he went to live and work in Dublin, becoming part of the traditional music scene.
He worked and recorded with several bands, before joining The Bothy Band, with whom he stayed for about a year-and-a-half, participating in the recording of one of the biggest selling album of traditional Irish music of all time (for which he was never paid). A number of recordings with various ensembles have taken place since then.
Tommy lived for a number of years in Ennis, County Clare, an area renowned for its traditional music, and is now living back in St Johnston, the village he is from. His daughter Siobhán is a noted fiddler also.
