I am an Irish fiddle player, music producer and label owner of Lughnasa Music. Please check out on my projects page the various activities I am presently involved in;  these include performing, teaching, arranging and producing.

 

 A selection of CDs are available from the Store, including Lá Lugh, Skylark, Journeyman and all more recent projects on which I am working: Oirialla, Jig Away the Donkey and a live Duo album with longtime musical partner, Breton guitarist Gilles le Bigot .

 

The long awaited album Bilingua by Eithne Ní Uallacháin is now available at Gael Linn label. Please visit Eithne's website for lots of photos and details abouth Eithne's life and her music. 

 

Recent developments include the publication of Cathal McConnell's song collection "I Have Travelled this Country" and, in collaboration with Fintan Vallely, we have created a mixed media one hour concert presentation of Fintan's  "Companach", the definitive Encyclopedia of Irish Music.

 

I continue to play as guest musician with  the wonderful White Raven vocal trio  and the celebrated and highly successful veterans of the Irish folk music scene The Irish Rovers. Check out these activities under Projects. 

 

I also manage a business in Violin Restoration and Sales under O'Connor Violins.
