Welcome to my website

Hello and thank you for visiting my website! I play traditional Irish music on both the two row button accordion and one row melodeon. I live in beautiful county Waterford, Ireland and have the great privilege of performing music all over the world with different bands and projects I am involved with. I have released several group albums over the years and now I have my debut solo album which is aptly titled Press and Draw. This site will give you a glimpse into my universe so feel free to check it all out.

NEW ALBUM RELEASE

I just completed a great new project this week with this new live recording from a great music pub in Dungarvan, Co.Waterford,The Local. A founder member of Danú Donnchadh Gough and his wife own this great spot in town and they gathered many of the great talents from Co.Waterford to feature on the album. Full of great music, song and recitation this album was recorded live over two evenings last February. It was mixed by Billy Sutton and mastered by Jason Whelan, two talented audio engineers in Newfoundland. The Artwork was created by the very talented Des Dillon. It is now released on all digital platforms (Itunes, Spotify, Google Play etc) and will be released on physical Cd soon also. Worth checking out.

    I am the newsletter editor of the Harp and Shamrock Society of Texas based in San Antonio and I am beginning a new section in the newsletter of reviewing newly published Irish CD's. Would like to know if I can request one of yours to review for our friends and members. It is difficult to get newly minted Irish CD's in this part of the US. The Harp and Shamrock Society of Texas is the largest Irish Society in Texas and was founded 54 years ago.
