Having performed in many countries throughout the world and in some beautiful spaces, from the strawberry fields of Ottawa, Canada, Bantry Bay, on the South Coast of Ireland to the gold gilt decorative cornice clad columns of Carnegie Hall, I have come to cherish the gift of my voice and my love of music and poetry as a means to carry something invisible and intangible to others.
I have enjoyed having the opportunity to perform and record over the years with many artists including The Chieftains, the Irish group Anuna, (whom I was a member for many years), Liam Lawton, John Walsh, Ronan Hardiman, Dervish, Secret Garden, and many other artists.

By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing back one sees the path that must never be trod again.Wanderer, there is no road - Only wakes upon the sea. Antonio Machado
