Peghead Nation’s Irish mandolin and fiddle teachers Marla Fibish and Dale Russ got together in the Peghead Nation studio to play a few tunes, including this set of slip jigs, “Dever the Dancer” and “Hunting the Hare.” 

Marla and Bruce are some of the best Irish musicians in the country. Martin Hayes has called Dale Russ “one of the greatest fiddlers I know in Irish traditional music” and Marla is one of the most renowned voices on the mandolin in Irish music. You can learn to play the traditional dance music of Ireland on the fiddle in Dale’s Irish Fiddle course or on the mandolin in Marla’s Irish Mandolin course. Enroll in Peghead Nation today!
