Peghead Nation’s Irish mandolin and fiddle teachers Marla Fibish and Dale Russare 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. They got together recently in the Peghead Nation studio to play a few tunes, including this medley of Irish jigs: “The Killavil Jig” and “Banish Misfortune.”

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!
