Irish-Themed Events

Whether you're looking for entertainment for St. Patrick's Day or just hoping to add some traditional Irish ballads and classic Irish-American pub songs to your party or event, these songs are a great fit for any joyous occasion.


  • If time and space allow, I can perform on both guitar and Irish bouzouki.
  • Like all other bookings, I provide my own sound system.

My repertoire of traditional Irish and Scottish songs goes way beyond this, but many of those songs wouldn’t be appropriate for a party (by most people’s standards). If you’re the sort of person who’d like to have some murder ballads or tales of the supernatural played at your event, though, let’s chat about the myriad possibilities!
