Gerry "Fiddle" O'Connor (born in Dundalk, County Louth, Ireland) is a traditional Irish fiddle player.
O'Connor's family have played fiddle for at least four generations, Gerry learning his music from his mother, Rose O'Connor, and also from hand-written manuscripts passed down through the family.
He later came under the influence of Sligo fiddler John Joe Gardiner. Gerry's performances concentrate on long forgotten tunes from his home area in the North East of Ireland, many of which were recorded on his 2004 album, Journeyman. From 2005-10 Gerry was Lecturer in Traditional Music Performance at Dundalk Institute of Technology during which time he was awarded with MA by Research on the Dance Music of Oriel under the supervision of Dr Fintan Vallely.
In addition to his solo performances and recordings, O'Connor is a founding member of two bands: Skylark (who have recorded four albums) and with Eithne Ní Uallacháin in La Lúgh (whose album Brighid's Kiss was voted album of the year in 1996 by readers of Irish Music Magazine). He has recently released album Oirialla with his new band featuring the Music and Song of South Ulster.
