tunebook 2 tunes.
I lead a Celtic-Bluegrass fusion band called "Sligo Rags" (Los Angeles, CA, USA), play a 5-string fiddle, teach private lessons, record, and run a trad tune learning website (www.fiddlin4you.com). Currently I perform mostly at Disney California Adventure, as well as festivals, concerts, and events throughout the United States … but mainly on the West Coast. I also host "Celtic Ceilis", which is a term I made up to describe what is essentially a mash up of a trad session and a sing-song for musicians of all levels. My website contains Irish tunes I have arranged and recorded, each section played by me at slow, medium, and fast tempos, along with a PDF of the music notation, which are downloadable for FREE. It also has numerous short video lessons, also FREE. It is also where you can find my blog, Fiddleosophy, and a calendar of events I am involved in. I am passionate about Irish music and about sharing the gospel of how to play the fiddle the "Fast, Easy, and Fun way."
