I live in southern Vermont. Recently retired. I have been playing music for about 60 years, majoring in Piano Performance and Music Theory in college. played several other instruments as well, and many different styles of music - rock, blues, American "folk", classical, jazz, and now almost exclusively for the last ten years, Irish traditional music. That’s when I first became closely aware of Irish traditional music. I’ve always loved true folk musics, but ITM really got me and hasn’t let go. I live sort of out in the woods and don’t have access to sessions, so I play mostly on my own except for when I go to concertina school every summer.
