"Fiddler extraordinaire Jeanne Freeman...a casual virtuosity...the music is light, airy and fun, and...really, really good...fabulous...the overall effect is just about perfect" -  John Thomas, The Fretboard Journal 

          "Set an enviable standard of proficiency" -Earle Hitchner (Wall Street Journal; Irish Echo) 


Hello and welcome to my website -- I'm a traditional Irish fiddler in Connecticut and enjoy sharing my love of Irish music with others, whether in concerts, traditional sessions, or teaching Irish fiddle.  I also founded and teach at the Connecticut Academy of Irish Music, which offers group lessons on a variety of instruments. 

I am honored to be the Guest Artist this year for the town-wide String Festival for Simsbury Public Schools; I'll be conducting workshops and teaching a bit of Irish music to the 5th through 12 grades!      

I was also featured in the June 2017 issue of Celtic Life International! Read it here:

Had a blast joining the great Fergal Scahill (We Banjo 3) as part of his phenomenal "Fiddle Tune a Day 2017" project!
