I have played the violin since the age of seven and I am delighted to offer my services to teach, play and share my music with you. I regularly play folk and popular music in pub sessions and private functions in my home town of Liverpool, my native Ireland and adopted France. I have performed solo and ensemble in numerous concerts, corporate events, weddings, and funerals and look forward to new opportunities to play more.
Sample tracks are available on my 'Listen' tab, together with a list of some of the music I enjoy playing. I welcome suggestions you may have for specific pieces and I will always try to prepare your personal choices for your occasion.
My favourite violin, 'The Butler' is a 150 year old carved 'Lion Head' from Mittenwald. I also play Viola and electric violin, all either solo or with backing tracks. A portable amplifier, pickup and radio microphone boost volume and allow me to move freely to play independently in or outside any venue, weather permitting. This in turn can link to existing PA systems at venues to increase volume and ambience.
I will be delighted to support you in planning your special event. Based in Liverpool, I am happy to travel to North West venues including Manchester, Wirral, Cheshire, Lancashire and North Wales. Further details are available on my 'Booking' tab.
