Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a banjo player, trying to master the intricasies of this fantastic instrument!!
Favorite Music:
I'd have to start with the likes of Gerry O'Connor and Barney McKenna, but I'm also into all kinds of other trad really - from téada through to more progressive trad in kíla and Ronán ó Snodaigh. Love also the newer brands of Celtic music from the likes of Flogging Molly, the Dropkick Murphys and seem to be following Blood or Whiskey quite a bit now. If I was to add Chrsty moore to this list I fear it would only make my taste sound even more eklectik!!!

Next week then things…

Well alas this morning the unthinkable happened. At about 11pm last night I was sharing a beer with a friend when I cut my right hand - just on my fingers. Nothing bad at all but it does limit the finger motion over hard strings! Hense my hose is now quiet for the sound of Banjo. It will be a few days yet before I am able to play again I think and I miss my tunes immensely.

Of course the other moment was from a few too many beers last night and hense spent a tired night in a hotel -…
