I am a fiddler living part time in Massachusetts and part time in Co Galway. I play Irish traditional music at sessions and for dancers. I love listening to the great old musicians and play with those ‘living treasures’ who still remain to us as often as possible.

Most of the music we play is dance music, yet we play it most often for ourselves and for listeners. What makes Irish music stand apart from other dance genres is that is so often poignant and even dark, and so I think should always be played beautifully and expressively.
