As a performer, weddings and proposals are among my favorite gigs - I love providing the soundtrack for someone else’s special moment! 2018 marks my ninth year of serenading folks down the aisle, both at home in Boston and and all over beautiful New England.
Working with couples to design the perfect folky, acoustic playlist for their wedding day is such a pleasure. Here on my site you can find samples and a complete song list to choose from, plus I can offer suggestions and guide you through the planning process. My primary focus is on traditional and contemporary folk and Celtic music, but I also cover an ever-growing list of pop, classic rock, indie, country and Americana songs from the 1930s to today, as well as the standard classical wedding pieces like "Canon in D" and "Here Comes the Bride", all played on steel-string acoustic guitar. You can have me focus on one genre, or mix it up and play a little of everything. I'm also happy to learn your special song, just for you!
I primarily perform solo, but I occasionally play in a duo with mandolinist Jordan Santiago, as well as with my traditional Irish band The Ivy Leaf. I've worked with most of the major wedding venues in the Boston area as well as Rhode Island, Cape Cod, Western Mass, Connecticut, and southern New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.
