I grew up in Brooklyn, playing guitar. Now I play fiddle, flute or concertina. After living in County Clare for the past 12 years or so we have returned to New Hampshire, USA. I played in Boston in the 70s with The Molly McGuire’s, Shanachie, and Fiddlers’ Green, and with The Blackwater Stringband (Rounder Records, "Songs for Future Generations") for about 25 years. Around 1990, piper/fluter Bill Thomas and I recorded an album ("Creagan") of traditional fiddle, flute, and concertina tunes.
I join a friendly local session every Tuesday night at The Barley House, in Concord, NH, just across the street from the State House. We start about 7:00. Nobody gets paid and drinks are on the house. Our sessions are community gatherings of friends who just want to play tunes, tell stories, and have some laughs. Our sessions are always open.
When I am in Ireland I live in Kilshanny, Co Clare. Other old cronies (and I) meet on Monday night in Marrinan’s, in Ennistymon. At odd times we’ll have a friendly open session in Kilshanny House, located midway between Ennistymon and Lisdoonvarna.
