More About Me

I am an American 5-string banjoist, guitarist, composer and studio musician living in Ireland. I wear many musical hats and do a lot of session work in different genres including bluegrass, pop, rock, country, folk 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 am something of a musical shape-shifter, and have worked in many styles of music since the mid eighties.

I feel blessed to be working in life with other like-minded artists and students of the banjo. I teach, tour, and play constantly, traveling back and forth between Ireland and the United States. I'm always on the lookout for new tunes and I collect traditional music from across a wide spectrum.


Hi Tom, I am interested in getting some lessons from you. Can you say how I might contact you to arrange same.
Regards Pascal

Okay, I'll be in touch.
