Doyle Family

The Doyles, a traveller family were working the street at Willie Week this year and fair dues to them, lovely music in the ‘traveller’ style. As far as I know, they’re from Manchester with various Irish parentage etc. Playing on this CD made in 2011 are Simon Doyle (father I think) on pipes and his daughters Winnie Marie on tenor banjo, Bridget on box and Margaret on fiddle. There are 5 daughters and 4 sons in the family and all seem to play, the lads mainly on pipes.

The Doyle family are fine musicians, they sometimes play in our local session in Liverpool.
