The Auld Locals Details

The Auld Locals

I grew up on the mean streets of South Dublin in Dundrum until I left for America at eighteen years old. My family made the move across to Boston after I finished secondary/high school in 1997. College soon followed and, after graduating from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, I headed for New York. As the economy started its downward slide I began to reconnect with my heritage: I found solace in the honesty, accuracy and cleverness of how old-time Irish folk music talked about ordinary people and their trials and tribulations.

I grew up in massachusetts thinking Irish music was something that only my great grandfather listened to. It wasn’t until my brothers and I bought plane tickets to Ireland in 2009 did I listen to Irish music. We spent more of that trip in the pubs listening than we did sightseeing. When I returned to Boston I searched for more.It was in Porter Belly’s Pub in Brighton, MA where I met Cormac. I was playing original songs at the time but he told me he was on a mission to revive Irish folk music, I was intrigued. It wasn’t long after he gave me a song book filled with the riches of Irish folk music that my education began.

I also grew up here in the States, in an environment where fiddle music was pretty hard to find. It was not until moving to Boston that I had any real exposure to the traditions, at which point I started to develop the notion of playing fiddle myself. Many years later, after fair amounts of twists & turns, I found myself working as a luthier at a violin shop here in Boston. Being inspired by the wonderous sounds of so many great fiddlers from around the world who visit regularly, it seemed right to make playing the instrument a more serious undertaking in my own life.
