It was such a joy to get back to playing again - and even better to have the time to complete some longtime projects.....
REMOTE FIDDLE COLLABORATION
Remote Recording Setup
It was fantastic to get a home studio setup, and I really enjoyed learning how to edit and work with audio and video, working also with midi samples to discover new sounds and possibilities. I released my first music on Spotify and collaborated with composer Diarmuid Kennedy on Chase a Loss - released in December 2020
Exploring the life and music of Turlough Carolan
I wanted to mark Carolan's 350th anniversary year by exploring his life and music, while also connecting with other musicians around my locality. My Carolan 350 project was the perfect way to do that, and I created a series of teaching videos. Thanks to Creative Places Tuam for their support of the project.

A Tune-a-day Christmas countdown supporting Tuam Cancer Care
This was my second Christmas without Mam and Dad, and I wanted to do something to honour their memory. So together with a few friends, I created a playalong video everyday featuring new and old Irish traditional music. Together we raised almost €1000 for Tuam Cancer Care. I'm hoping this will become an annual project.
