Mayo. Since my journey began with my harp (many moons ago) I have met many amazing musicians and serious characters and played some interesting music. I've been involved in more than 50 recordings with artists like Kathleen MacInnes, Eimear Quinn, Steve Cooney, Sinéad O'Connor, Tríona, Maighread and Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin, The Chieftains, Mary Black, Donal Lunny, Kate Bush, Matt Molloy, Sharon Shannon, Tim O'Brien, Cherish the Ladies, Máírtín O'Connor. I recorded 2 albums and toured extensively with traditional group 'Bumblebees' and have a solo album 'Just Harp'.
I grew up in a musical household and went to fleadhs, harp competitions and festivals. One of the most memorable was the Belfast Bicentennial Harp festival in 1992 and being presented the Waterford Crystal harp by Mr. Derek (ding-dong) Bell RIP. I have performed for President Mary Robinson and President Mary McAleese and for the 25 Heads of State of the EU at a special concert, I've also played at the last winter solstice of the Millennium at Newgrange; at Parliament buildings, Stormont, for the Northern Ireland Assembly Christmas celebrations, and am honoured to have performed along with Poet Laureate Seamus Heaney on the ancient hill of Tara, to raise awareness of the current destruction of the Tara landscape.
