He has toured with the international dance shows Ragús, Irish Legends and Irish Dreams and as a member of the band Gráda. He also performs with the Salamanca Ceili Band.
His debut CD “Changing Time” has been hailed by Alex Monaghan of The Living Tradition as “an exemplary debut recording…” The album It consists of 12 tracks of both traditional and newly composed music, including two pieces which will appear on a documentary about the women of the Magdalene Laundries.
