Banjo player (& mandolin) originally from Dublin, now living in Alaska. Started playing in around 1981, mainly self taught.
Late starter as they’d say in Ireland.
I play a Paragon Clifford Essex and a Gibson A mandolin, I also have a Paramount A banjo.
I have also been promoting music in Alaska for almost as long as I’ve been here and have brought numerous Irish Artists to Alaska on tour. Alaska Irish Music Events Site now defunct.
I left Alaska in 2012 and have been travelling around America in an RV ever since, I’m a full time RVer.
