I got into irish dance music in the early 1980’s at the legendary Gaelic Club sessions in Sydney with the ‘three Jimmys’: Jim Philbin (Connemara), Jim Mullarkey (Sligo) & Jim McBride (Antrim). I generally play tenor banjo or D/G melodeon at sessions and ceili dances.
These days I’m discovering the tunes played by the old local Aussie musicians who were recorded from the 1950s onwards. Also enjoying playing jazz (bass guitar, button box) and baroque music (mandolin, recorders) with some wonderful local musicians.
