More About Me
I am an American ex-pat 5-string banjoist, blues guitarist, composer and studio musician, now living in Ireland. I wear many musical hats and do a recording session work in different genres including TV commercials, pop, rock, country, bluegrass and Irish trad.
I am currently teaching bluegrass banjo, Irish and Celtic fingerstyle banjo. I have four Irish and Celtic collections with Mel Bay Publications, Inc.
-Complete Book of Irish & Celtic 5-String Banjo (1998)
-Best-Loved Jigs and Reels (2012)
-Best-Loved Airs and Session Tunes (2013)
-20 O'Carolan Irish Classics for 5-String Banjo and All Instruments (2015)
I enjoy being a musical shape-shifter, and have worked in many bands, playing many styles of music since the mid-eighties.
I feel blessed to be working in life with like-minded artists, also being a resource for students of the banjo. I teach, tour, and play every day, traveling back and forth between Ireland and the United States. I'm always on the prowl for cool tunes, and I collect traditional music from across a wide musical spectrum.

Regards Pascal - DUBHDA
