I perform traditional Irish music and co-lead the band, Toraigh, with Mary Dennis. I also lead traditional Irish music sessions monthly at the Blarney Irish Pub in downtown Toledo and at Aistear Brewing in Bowling Green.
I participate in the music ensemble, Ceoltoiri Nua, as one of the members and attend music sessions led by Mary Dennis weekly in Bowling Green, and hosted by the Detroit Irish Music Association in Ann Arbor.
I have been performing this type of music since 1993. My instruments are simple-system flute, tin whistle, uilleann pipes (the traditional bagpipes of Ireland), and bass guitar and I sometimes also serve as a lead or backup vocalist.
