Telephone:

 

574-276-7822 this is a cell phone, which goes with me on the road so it’s the easiest way to reach me “live.” I check the message center often, so this is the most reliable.

Home phone same as cell phone.

 

 

Performing:

Clubs, festivals, workshops, sessions, weddings, funerals, union rallies, school appearances. If you want to know what I’ve done, see resume. I have a club-size sound system, could get larger P.A. by arrangement. I am a very competent live sound mixer.

 

Experienced Feis musician:

Competent feis musician for hire! Fiddler, and/or accompanist. (Are you adventurous? Try hammered dulcimer!) I play all the set dances, including the "new" ones. While playing for set dancers I keep the written music before me to avoid mistakes and dropped measures. I operate with a metronome (in my ear if it's loud) to get the tempo - so important for competition - exactly right. I have 25 years experience with reels, jigs, slip sigs, treble jigs and hornpipes. I have sound equipment if necessary. Feiseanna in Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Kentucky are within driving distance, so I can save you money - and stress - with early arrival. I've played for Trinity, World Academy, Michigan, Pat Roche, etc. Try something new at your feis: The night before, when everybody's coming in, wandering around looking for something to do, I can do a show, playing and singing on multiple instruments, in your hotel hospitality room. I can set up a Power Point with lyrics to songs and initiate a serious "sing-along."

 

Teaching:

Hammered dulcimer, fiddle, beginner tin whistle, bodhrán, accompanist styles on guitar, bouzouki and piano. One-on-one, families, groups. I really love teaching parents and children together. Parents ought to store up fun for those retirement/ empty nest years, and they can practice with their children (and perform with them! I do.)

 

         Private, one-on-one, small groups:

 

In South Bend, call me on the cell phone: 574-276-7822 I’m home most evenings, and will expand times and days if needed.
