The Initiation (2007)
This was my first real solo album and I hope you give it a listen and enjoy. It was produced by Mike Dugger, formerly of Scartaglen and now of Kelly and Glen Road, and engineered by Craig Markley (www.loneraven.com).
Much of the album is a result of my experience playing Irish music in Central Ohio and how much I’ve been influenced while growing up in the tradition. Perhaps this will give you a snapshot of the rich Irish music scene in little-known place such as where I grew up.
Guests on the album include Liz Carroll (fiddle), Marian Funk (piano accordion), Zac Leger (guitar, whistles, bodhran, percussion), Craig Markley (piano, keyboard), Rick Nelson (guitar), John Sherman (tenor banjo), Jennifer Short (cello) and Jeni Westerkamp (harp).
