 I've been playing music in Irish pubs, festivals, schools, libraries and other private and public venues since about 1996. Throughout Florida and parts of Georgia and South Carolina I have enjoyed performing a wide variety of music from Irish folk and traditional music to American folk, classic, popular music and rock and roll. Over the years I've performed primarily as a solo with guitar, banjo, harmonica and my voice but have also really enjoyed getting together with friends to accompany me.
      Currently, I live in Aiken, SC, where I moved in the beginning of 2011. I still get down to Florida to play in a few of the Irish venues that have made me a regularly scheduled musicain and have been getting more involved in venues in the Carolinas. Over the past year I've begun playing at Delaney's Music Pub in Columbia, SC and look forward to some dates at McGee's Irish Pub in Anderson, SC.
     I'm grateful to have made a living playing good music in great, privately owned and operated venues over the past 15 years or so. I've often been inspired to urge others to find something that they love to do and then find someone who will pay them for it. I am always thankful to those owners and managers who have made me a part of their public face through my music and to the many friends and acquaintances I've met over the years who regularly come out and show their support to me and to these private businesses.
     Finally, I'm glad you stopped by to visit my site. I have a performance shedule posted that is always being updated as well as links to businesses and other musicians I like to support and urge you  to do the same. I have a blog page of sorts where I make mention of things that are important to me and that I don't mind sharing with visitors.
     So, enjoy. I hope to see you or hear from you out in the music world!
All the Best,
Chris

      A slight alteration of the schedule finds me in Lakeland, Florida and Molly McHugh's tonight and tomorrow rather than my usual last weekend. Jimmy and Darin will be with me tonight.
      I had a great few past weekends. Delaney's in Columbia, SC was not a huge weekend but always good to get back there. Before that, Rose Hill in Aiken, SC was a fantastic night. Music in the courtyard. A great, attentive crowd of folks. I'm looking forward to getting back sometime soon. 
     The next night I was at McGee's in Anderson, SC for the last in a series of single nights over the past several months. I'm really enjoying settling into a new pub with a new clientele.
     Yesterday, I booked an afternoon gig next Saturday, Sept. 29 at The Curiosity Shop in downtown Aiken, SC in celebration of their new beer and wine licence. I'll post times in the next few days.
I'll be sure to post any upcoming dates at all of these venues and hope you'll stop by oneof them for a visit and some cheer.
