Pat Mac Swyney

Greetings from north County Los Angeles. I’ve been playing Irish Trad. since about 1980. Primary instruments: Octave Mandolin (aka bouzouki), Mandolin, Tin Whistle. Also play assorted strings in Trad. Jazz and Old-Time as well as wind instruments for Balkan Trad. Grandfather from Donegal and have been championing Donegal tunes here in California. Somewhere in the late 80s, a local piper said “You must be a hug Altan fan?” “What the heck is an altan?” I asked. Slainte, Pat
