The Hatfield Sisters, as a musical group, was formed inadvertently by sisters, Anne and Mary Hatfield, after many years of playing together at home. Although classically trained, the Sisters musical repertoire thrives on a fusion of Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton Fiddle music. Steeped in tradition, these Celtic fiddle styles retain their musical relevance with the Sisters subtle variations and fresh arrangements. The Hatfield Sisters musical escapades have taken them to numerous venues including Chicago Celtic Fest, Chicago Cultural Center, Northern Illinois University's World Music Concert, Parrot's Eyes in Colorado, Chicago's Navy Pier, and Milwaukee Irish Fest. Currently Anne is touring with Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance. Their combination of high-energy step-dance and fiddling creates a contagious exuberance, infecting audiences with irrepressible clapping and toe-tapping.
