The Fiddle and the Fife exhibition, uses artefacts, video, photographic and audio recordings, to promotes the rich musical and cultural heritage of the Mid-Antrim area.

The exhibition focus on the tradition of music as a unifying force; as tunes, songs and musical styles travel and cross pollinate with the constant movement of people down through the centuries.  It delves into the world of makers, players and places.  The life stories of the craftsmen, the musicians and the gathering places where they performed are explored. 

The exhibition is a collaboration between Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and local artists, Johnny Murphy (fiddler and a fourth generation violin maker), Willie Drennan (folk musically and storyteller), David McClean (photographer, audio video technician and musician). 

The exhibition is on display in the Mid-Antrim Museum, Ballymena from 14 September until 18 January 2020.  Admission is free and the gallery is open Monday-Saturday.
