I am a recovering bluegrass player from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. I play fiddle, mandolin and bouzouki. I have had an interest in Irish Music for over 30 years but for most of that time I was playing in bluegrass (Whiskey Jack) or country (Washboard Hank and the Honkers) bands. I started to play ITM seriously in 2003.


At the age of fifty I have the fire again, just like when I was 20 and was driven to learn bluegrass. But now it’s traditional Irish music that is my passion.
