Private Parties & Concerts

Intimate performances for private gatherings, whether they be background music gigs for special occasions or house concerts, are a lot of fun. Here's some info about having me perform for your party, house concert series, or something in between!


Parties - whether to celebrate an anniversary, birthday, graduation, or something else - tend to be background music gigs, where I play acoustic covers or Irish music, and encourage folks to join in and sing along if appropriate. There's no pressure for folks to sit quietly and pay undivided attention - the point is to celebrate and mingle!

You can choose from any of my repertoire:

House concerts combine the casual atmosphere and intimacy of a party with the format of a formal concert, all in the comfort of your home! Typically for house concerts I perform a selection of the traditional music I'm currently performing in my public live gigs.

Often house concerts are open to the public (with or without your address being published), but you can also host a private concert for just you and your friends, family and guests. For more info about hosting concerts in your home, read up at

Check out my Music page to hear my albums and current demos. Cover songs and other popular Irish material can be included.



  • For some events or in-demand dates I may request a deposit and a signed contract, but for most I simply need to confirm details via email and request for payment on arrival.
  • A special request song may be included with enough notice.
  • Any private party or concert booking can be a solo performance or a duo performance with mandolin and violin player Jordan Santiago.
