Currently based in Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire UK, I am a British American who has been playing violin/fiddle for nearly 25 years. Starting out with classical music in elementary school when I was 9, I decided to switch to Irish Folk music after university. Having a background in multiple styles has enabled me to develop a unique way of playing.
I spend the majority of my time doing street performances in many towns across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and other locations across the country. As a freelance musician I also play with various bands. At the moment I'm playing with Croagh Patrick (a local Irish band), Adam Schofield, and the Band from County Hell. I'm also playing in a new group called Smith & Co. Check out the websites og my bandmates: Lynn McFarland and Matt Steady. I have previously played with Mary Jane and The Lonely Mr Punch. I also have room to work with other musicians in need of a fiddle player for a period of time. See my calendar below for availability.
I also Irish dance and occasionally perform a few steps at a gig, especially around St. Patrick's day!
I love to travel all over the world and plan to perform in other countries and possibly on cruise ships in the future.
I am available for many types of events including:
