About Olivia Barrett:

Summoning a wave of modern nostalgia, Olivia’s masterful fiddle playing flows seamlessly between the old and the new, breathing life into traditional tunes through the rhythms of contemporary folk. Elegant, playful, and precise, Olivia’s music is defined by her gift for crafting new melodies from the threads of the traditions of Ireland, Scotland, and Scandinavia.

Raised on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Olivia grew up in a community known for its nurturing of young artists and musicians and went on to graduate from Memorial University of Newfoundland. While studying at the University of Limerick’s Irish World Academy in 2019, she was selected to represent the academy both at Glasgow's Celtic Connections festival and at Milwaukee Irish Fest.

Olivia performs with harpist Ellen Gibling and as a member of the trio Síle, formed at the Irish World Academy.
