Tommy Peoples (born 1948) is an Irish fiddler who plays in the Donegal fiddle tradition.
He was born near St. Johnston, County Donegal, in Ireland. He has been a member of well-known traditional Irish music groups, including 1691 and The Bothy Band as well as performing solo since the late 1960s. He plays in the unique fiddle style of East Donegal.
After moving to Dublin in the 1960s, where he was employed as a Garda (member of the Irish police force), he subsequently moved to County Clare and married Mary Linnane, daughter of Kitty Linnane, long-time leader of the Kilfenora Céilí Band. He now resides in his home village of St Johnston. His daughter Siobhán Peoples is a noted fiddler in her own right.
Tommy Peoples is currently the Traditional Musician In Residence at The Balor Arts Centre, Ballybofey, County Donegal.
In July 2015 he launched a self-published book Ó Am go hAm - From Time to Time. The book combines a fiddle tutor by Tommy, along with illustrations and a complete notation of 130 original tunes by Tommy. The book also includes many stories and incidents from his life and musical career.
