Bio

I've been happily married to Deborah for the last twenty years and we have three lovely children, Kelsey, Luke and Cameron.

I am an Irish and traditional country music performer. I sing a wide range of songs ranging from the hits of the Mavericks and greats like Merle Haggard, to Irish country favourites.

I basically do songs that i love or have inspired me, so you can be sure I'm enjoying my performance!

I have been fortunate to have met some great performers on my travels. I especially enjoyed meeting Robert Mizzell and Barry Doyle on their visit to Yorkshire. Luke showed an interest in country music from an early age (7) and accompanied me to see Robert and Barry in concert. He has taken up the guitar and enjoys listening to country music. Who knows, you may even see him performing with his Dad in the near future!

I am constantly asked to do songs of different styles and although I usually stick to all things country, I have turned my hand to various other styles. The recent success of my cover version of Roy Orbison's 'Only The Lonely' inspired me to try other styles.
