Donal Baylor

Hello and welcome to my website. I am a fiddler and guitarist and play bluegrass and western swing with passion!

For many years, I have played on the Australian music scene as a sideman and as a bandleader. I have always loved the 'classic' sound of traditional music and my influences include the great players of the genres. I have also been lucky enough to play with many talented Australian singers and musicians, who have all helped in shaping my musical style.

I'll keep you posted here about gigs and news - feel free to contact me.


2014 sees a return to many favourite festivals. Redlands bluegrass festival is always a great event. Hosted by a fabulous committee of bluegrass enthusiasts, it never fails to be a great weekend. Mountain Grass in the Harrietville springtime is the 'must' event of the year. Keep a look out as word spreads about these two great events.

Big excitement though, is Bluegrass Parkway's return to the US in September. It will be five years since our last trip and this one is really shaping up to be the best ever. I'll post details here as they are confirmed.
