irish flute and tin whistle


Hi, I'm Sean.

I’ve been playing Irish traditional music on flute and tin whistle since 1996 and Highland bagpipes since 1997. As a child, I grew up listening to the classic Irish balladeers such as the Clancy Brothers, Dubliners, and the Wolfe Tones - but it was in the pubs of New York where I started to learn about traditional instrumental music.

Eventually, I joined the Irish-rock band SixMileBridge and spent the better part of three years touring the country performing at festivals and concert venues and recording on three studio albums with the band.

I currently live in Nashville, Tennessee playing sessions and local acoustic shows, as well as with the band The Sternwheelers and anyone else who’ll put up with me. Living in this cool town has afforded me the opportunity to play on the Grand Ole Opry and the PBS television shows, Music City Roots and Bluegrass Underground. I also teach lessons in person and over Skype from time to time and I ran the tin whistle tutorial website for about fifteen years.
