Irish Festival




Cead Mile Failte

Over the last several years I've played a wide variety of Irish republican ballads and rousing rebel songs throughout New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and in Ireland. The venues I've played range from intimate pubs and clubs to festivals and outdoor functions. Over the years I have shared billing with acts such as The Prodigals, The Glengarry Bhoys, Black 47, Tommy Makem, and Cherish the Ladies. I offer a quality, high energy, affordable, solo act aimed to please audiences of all ages.

Beside regular pub performances, I play several Irish festivals during the summer months. I enjoy donating my time, talent, and energy to a good cause. I work in close association with my local Irish community and it's various member groups such as the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) The Great American Irish Festival, and the Irish Political Prisoners Children's Holiday ( I.P.P.C.H.) and contribute time, talent, and resources in their many fundraising efforts. I've recently been given an endorsement deal from PulsarTech equipment (
