I live in London and am the first generation of my family to be born in England. My ancestry is Waterford and Roscommon. I learned to play the accordion as a child and became quite proficient - accompanying Val Doonican once at the Royal Albert Hall! Although I still have two accordions, having inherited my father’s when he passed away, my new interest is the fiddle and I have started practising in earnest during the lockdown. I think that The Session will be a wonderful resource to help me and to motivate me on this new challenge.
