Hi everybody. I am a bald Frenchman, born in Paris quite a long time ago and a lover of everything Irish, especially the trad music but not only trad. I discovered Ireland in 1989, so I could see the days when the Celtic Tiger was a cub.

I am a pretty amateurish guitarist but I manage to accompany meself on quite a few songs. I was taught in the trade by the great Eoghan Lucey, a sweet singer from Middleton Co, Cork, and the distinguished owner of the Green Linnet, the pub in Paris where we do a session on Monday nights starting at 9p.m.
