I am a Meath based professional contemporary guitarist performing solo instrumental guitar (acoustic & electric) with over 25 years experience.
I am hired for special occasions such as wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions, dinner parties & for restaurant ambience. I can accompany other singers/musicians and I also sing myself. While I cater for all tastes, I do like to do things a little differently and add my own unique blend of melodic, atmospheric guitar soundscapes to any musical style, apart from just playing traditional wedding music.
Due to my 15 years of experience playing different types of ceremonies, I know their structures in detail and the sections where music is placed, and I am happy to help if you need any advice.

My musical roots stem back to playing lead guitar with Indie Rock band Caldestino (later Thespian Three), in the late 1990's and 2000's.
