I have played irish music since the beginning of the ‘80’s. I was one of the founding members of one of the first bands that played irish music in Finland, "Korkkijalka". I play the guitar, bouzouki, banjo and mandolin. Anything you pick with a plectrum. Kevin Burke’s playing with the Bothy Band was the first thing that inspired me to go in to irish music from other styles that I used to play before that..
