The Celtic Fiddlers are a group of approximately 12 young people ranging in age from 16 to 29 years whose main goal is to keep Newfoundland and Irish music alive in the youth of our province.

They were formed in 1993 under the direction of the very dedicated Korona Brophy, and have been touted as true Newfoundland ambassadors of traditional music by the Department of Tourism.

The Celtic Fiddlers are a performing group in which its members play instruments including the bodhran, keyboard, guitar, bass, Irish tin whistle, bouzouki, cajon, accordion and mandolin. Through weekly rehearsals, they enjoy learning new pieces of music, especially the songs and jigs and reels of their Irish ancestors.

"From the very young age of six, I have been playing fiddle under the direction of Korona Brophy. In September of 2013, I took my passion for traditional Newfoundland music to the next level as I joined the Celtic Fiddlers. Ever since the beginning of my music career, I dreamed of this accomplishment and couldn't wait to be a part of such an excellent group. As an extremely shy individual, my music has allowed me to slowly come out of my shell after many years on stage and meeting new people and musicians constantly. Without this group, I would not have been able to break this barrier that had been restricting me from numerous opportunities. With the group, I've been able to participate in many community service activities such as playing in seniors homes, festivals, and many more. From numerous tours around the Province of Newfoundland, a tour of Ireland and a tour of New York, the Celtic Fiddlers have also enabled me to pursue my travelling goals while continuing to do what I love."

"Congrats to Korona Brophy and The Celtic Fiddlers on this recognition. They are so very deserving. I first met Korona in 2008 when my son Anthony Chafe joined the Celtic Fiddlers. He was the newest member of the group and she and the entire group welcomed him so warmly. Korona has the drive, passion and determination to keep our Irish Music alive and flourishing in our youth. She has opened the group to trips to Ireland and New York and around our beautiful province. Korona has guided and moulded so many young musicians to be where they are today–my son being one of them!"
