John & Tyler Weed

Irish Folk

John Weed, fiddler for Molly`s Revenge, One Lane Bridge, and Little Black Train, is immersed in various fiddle styles. John lived in Ireland in 2000 and taught fiddle workshops at the Flowing Tide International Music School in Doonbeg, County Clare. He has honed his skills since, attending the Frankie Kennedy Winter School in Dunlewey, County Donegal where he studied with Ciaran O`Maonaigh and Dermot Mcloughlin. Having an affinity for American fiddle styles, bluegrass and old time, John explores the connection between Irish, Scottish, and old time fiddle. John will be joined by his son, guitar player Tyler Weed. Tyler has been steeped in several folk traditions, and has grown up having these traditions passed down to him. His playing is characterized by fluent timing and an intuitive sense of backing fiddle tunes.
