I've released one CD "Stories To Tell"


Feeling a bit camera shy


I love the moment during a show when an audience member will lean over to me and ask "do you know that song ...?" And I almost always know the song and I'm more than happy to play it for them. I have evolved as a performer that used to just sing songs into an entertainer that knows the audience is there to have a good time. People are often curious about songs and like to hear a story or a bit about the song they're about to hear. I grew up in Chicago in a large Irish/Catholic family where I was greatly influenced by the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem.I started by singing at "sessions" and then took up the guitar and began to gig around the Chicago area.
