biographical info

I left Galway in 1967 and soon after realized that the Irish heritage of music and song would be precious to me forever. On this CD I have tried to emphasize the singing of songs. The CD features songs of my youth - Irish songs - Gaelic and English; also some Country and Western songs. There are some songs from my 'new' home on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada. I inherited a love of performing from my father Claude. As a shy youth of 12 years, I sang in public for the first time on condition that 'everyone had their eyes closed!' During my drinking years I often grabbed an opportunity to burst into song. My folk music hero was Ronnie Drew of The Dubliners. In 1990, I bought a small farm on Salt Spring and resigned from my job as Professor of Mathematics and Business Computing at Ryerson University in Toronto. In 1993, at the age of 50, I joined my first group, Spanner in the Works, based in Ganges, Salt Spring Island. Derek Duffy, Myranda O'Byrne, Terry Warbey and I had a lot of fun performing Celtic music. In 1994 Denise McCann, Jo Lundstrom and I formed Black Velvet Band.
