Biographies; About Matt Tighe and Tad Sargent
Living in South London and born to an Irish and Trinidadian background, fiddle player Matt Tighe is quickly making a name for himself in the world of folk and Traditional music. He has been described as a, “ﬁery virtuoso”, and has already had an extensive experience in performance, playing at many festivals and clubs within the UK and Ireland. Matt has won numerous awards such as the London Fiddle Champion and numerous All Britain Championships, been a ﬁnalist in the Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections and a nominee at the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.
London Born Tad Sargent, whose family roots come from Castlebar in county Mayo, started playing music at a young age on the piano. He started playing the bodhrán (the Irish drum) in 2002 after re-discovering his childhood love for Irish music. Learning about Irish music took years of attending sessions run by Irish music legends such as Mick O’Connor. He picked up the bouzouki in 2008 and has performed/recorded and worked with many great musicians and groups such as Barrule, Tony Christie, Luke Daniels and Cara Dillon.
