Augusta Irish Week

  • Augusta Heritage Center of Davis & Elkins College

2016 marks my debut year on faculty at the Augusta Irish Week, held on the campus of Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, West Virginia.  As a youth I regularly attended this camp in a student capacity, studying banjo with Eamon O'Leary & John Walsh, and guitar with John Doyle.  I am immensely gratified to be returning as an instructor this year, teaching DADGAD Guitar and bouzouki.

A number of years ago, I made a late-night "crash" appearance at the Halliehurst Porch along with friends Sean McComiskey and Cleek Schrey.  Here is a video of what ensued - and I hope to recreate some of that spirit this time around! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESXpiaMb4Zs
