About My Work:

I have been a collector, performer and teacher of traditional forms of fiddle music from the Celtic countries of Ireland and Scotland, and North America for over 30 years. In the late 1970’s I visited and researched the music and culture of these countries to build upon my love and understanding of this traditional but still innovative art form. I am also a dual citizen of both Canada and the US. I love the unrecognized history and traditional music from both sides of the border and their connections to the Celtic culture.
