The story of SEVEN NATIONS is that of a truly original and determined band that began in New York City, with members now hailing from California, to Toronto, to Florida. They have for years booked their own tours,and have had their own PBS and CNN specials. Throw away any preconceived notions you may have about Celtic music…this is a band that has invented its own sound and attracted a prodigious national and international following.
Seven Nations is not your father’s Celtic band. With a passionate, tender, and rollicking style that winningly veers from roots and folk to dance and fusion-rock, Seven Nations has earned a growing reputation as an adventurous band with a charismatic stage presence.

I have been playing music for as long as I can remember, and it is a joy to do this for a living. I specialize in traditional Irish, Scottish, and Scandinavian music on the Celtic harp. I play concerts solo and with several groups of friends. I teach workshops and lessons, and I write and arrange music for the Celtic harp. I also play music for weddings, funerals, and events. May you find something to interest you here.
