A juried artist with the Vermont Arts Council, Brendan Taaffe is a dynamic performer and teaching artist who uses traditional dances, songs and stories to engage audiences of all ages. Playing fiddle and guitar, telling heart-warming stories, and leading songs and dances, Brendan looks to build a sense of connection and community, and to use music to lift us up. Lauded for a "presence in a school that lights up the entire building" and for a "gift that is a rare treasure indeed," by Jon Gailmor, Brendan has toured throughout North America and Europe as a solo performer, as well as The Bright Wings Chorus, Magic Foot, and Northern Harmony. He has recorded several albums, including one for children.
