Wonderful news – I have been awarded the COVID-19 Crisis Response Award by Arts Council Ireland! This will enable me to compose and record a series of pieces for guitar and electronics, which I will be publishing online for you good folks. So stay tuned for that..
Now I’m off to write some new music! 🎶
JAZZGate shows are now postponed until further notice, at least until March 29th. This is due to the mandatory government measures implemented around Covid19.

Really excited to have curated a new summer series of themed jazz concerts at The Black Gate Galway.
Here is the updated JAZZGate schedule for the rest of the summer!
Really enjoyed playing on #ClassicDrive on RTÉ Lyric FM, and chatting to Lorcan Murray about Gamelan, jazz and my upcoming electronic EP!
