Jim Whitfield

I am a professor of Entomology at the University of Illinois and have been participating at the sessions in Champaign, IL (Dublin O’Neil’s, Wednesday evenings 8:30-10:30) for about 5 or 6 years. Usually there I play mandolin, but am learning some backing technique on guitar (may main instrument outside of the Irish session setting). I’d like to think I can learn pennywhistle as well, but am not far enough along on that to try in public!
Come join our session in Champaign if you are in town - it’s one of the best in Illinois outtside Chicago!
