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 : http://akirishtrad.net
Doing more and more touring with Fánaí http://akirishtrad.net/Fanai.html
