I toured for many years with great artists such as; Mary Black , Green on Red, Paul Brady, Brian Kennedy, Andy White, Maura O’Connell, Frances Black, Kieran Goss and Gilbert O’Sullivan.
I am mainly a session player and have played on too many albums to list here.
I try to play in 2 shows every year to keep up the sight reading chops and because I enjoy it.
I used to play with the Conquerors doing mainly theatre shows, the annual Irish all star cruise and corporate events/weddings but left after several productive years to play Bass guitar and Double Bass with a rising young Scottish country singer called Lisa Mc Hugh with Ray Mc Loughlin on Piano, Colm Mc Lean on guitar and Robbie Casserly on drums. Hot band!
I decided in January’13 to concentrate on writing for the Chapman NS Stick and to play freelance again and so left the Lisa Mc Hugh band.
I have recently been doing live concerts with Frances Black and a young singer / songwriter called Louise Killeen, and have been touring as a member of the great Daniel O’Donnell’s new band.
I am currently playing with a very talented singer / songwriter Derek Ryan.
What’s the biggest audience you ever performed to? What’s the smallest?
Zero to Hero!
You’re stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem. I first heard it performed in Southwark cathedral, London. Probably the most moving live concert I have ever been lucky enough to experience.
