Have been playing fiddle off and on over the years. Started in late fifties as a child with 9 months or so of lessons (only formal training!). Family moved from County Leitrim to Britain in 1957. Usual mis-spent youth (tinkered with tenor sax, bass guitar in C&W band, also piano accordion) but came back to trad in early eighties on discovering Comhaltas in Luton/Bedford area of UK Midlands. Returned to Ireland in 1993.

Interests are now strictly trad and I particularly enjoy session playing (both in Dublin & Clare) and the camaraderie that goes with it, including of course the "session site".
