2 Worlds United is a phenomenal group of Celtic musicians that have gathered to create an International Celtic trio from both sides of the Atlantic. Renowned Canadian ﬁddler, Pierre Schryer from Ontario, is touring with Irish button accordionist Dermot Byrne (from the Irish super group Altan) and guitarist Adam Dobres from British Columbia, Canada. All of these musicians have superb international reputations.

In 1999, Pierre and Dermot recorded a CD entitled “2 Worlds United” on the New Canadian Records label, which was later re-released in Ireland for worldwide distribution with Claddagh Records. This album is now available on iTunes, among other albums produced by these great musicians.
