One has deep Irish roots and the other not so much. But both Patrick Finley and Hollie Greenwood share a love of Irish music and the ability to play it like a dream. In August, Finley became a two-time world champion of the Irish fiddle at the 2017 All-Ireland competition in Ennis, Ireland. The Atlanta International School senior took first place in the under 18 fiddle slow airs competition. (Last year, he placed first in the fiddle for the same age group).
