‘Just about the best Tin Whistle player this century’ is how the Irish Times refers to Mary Bergin. Mary’s first solo album ‘Feadóga Stáin’ brought out in 1979, holds its place as a classic in latter-day traditional music. Her second solo one in 1992 was referred to as having Biblical status with fans of Celtic music. 

Mary Bergin’s playing is a ‘dazzling combination of technique and passion’.  Called the ‘the undisputed Queen of the Tin Whistle’ by IrishCentral, she has toured extensively in Europe, America and in Australia playing in concerts and festivals. She is also a dedicated teacher of traditional Irish music regularly giving workshops, seminars and teaching master classes in many universities around the world.

In 2000, Mary was awarded the prestigious Gradam Ceoil TG4 ‘Traditional Musician of the Year' Award.  She is currently finishing work on Volume III of her Irish Tin Whistle Tutor (Volumes I and II currently in print).
