ABOUT

Classically trained and played 1st chair in symphonies, symphonic bands, musicals, etc. but interested in playing folk music, especially Irish. Looking for at-home jam sessions, but performances at bars would be super! Grew up with French Canadian fiddle music and the style is close to my heart, and traditional Irish folk is the most similar. I’m 39, married with children, and want music playing back in my life.
