It’s been a busy few years and it shows no sign of letting up. Endless tours and recording in Ireland, Europe, UK and USA keep the Irish troubadour busy. He is a master storyteller and an inspiring live performer. His beautiful finger-style guitar and joyous vocal weave a tapestry that is as poignant as it is skillful. He is a true artist.
