John Robert Deyell (Fiddle)


JR has done various solo projects, including playing at many fiddle festivals, mainly in Ireland, and he is still part of many other musical combinations, incuding The Mad Mental Ceilidh Band.
John Robert plays a new fiddle from Shetland fiddle maker Tommy Isbister, and he also uses for different jobs an electric Skyinbow fiddle also made in Shetland. For that sweet mellow sound JR prefers his old copy Vuillaume, made in the late 1800's in France, and beautifully restored to it's former glory by Fair Isle fiddle maker Ewan Thompson. JR likes nothing better than a good going impromptu session with various musicians, and has made many friends throughout the years at home and abroad. JR's influences have included Aly Bain, Rodney Miller and Stocktons Wing.
