I’ve been playing the violin since I was 7 years old—I learned classical violin as a youngster and played in orchestras and chamber ensembles from then on.

I discovered fiddle in my late teens and when I moved to Liverpool in the '70s I began my apprenticeship with the Liverpool Ceili Band.

I played in the Fleadh Cheoil na h’Eireann in 1981 and got my Teastas (Diploma in Traditional Music) the same year.

Fun Fiddling for everyone!
It’s a well-known fact that fiddling keeps you young — at least, it stops you growing up!


Why not give the fiddle a go?

You’ll have everyone’s feet tapping.

I’ll come to you or you can visit me at home—beginners or converts from classical.
