Contemporary & Traditional Acoustic Music...

I'm a fingerstyle guitar player, based in Halifax, NS, Canada, that plays contemporary & traditional acoustic music from various corners of the world, as well as composing new music in both contemporary and "in the tradition" styles. Most of my music is intended for solo guitar (see my SoundCloud page) but I also play in a flute/violin/guitar trio with the neo-celtic/world contemporary/traditional trio, Papilio.

Papilio is Jennifer Publicover (Irish & silver flutes, bodhran), Anthony Rissesco (violin & vocals) and myself on guitar, bouzar and bass.

Our CD, First Flight, is now available...and has been nominated for an ECMA for Traditional Instrumental Recording of the Year! Ask me how you can get yours! A few copies of our 6-track EP (mini-album), Emergence, are also still available but numbers are limited. You can listen to tracks from First Flight on our Tradconnect page, or at our website. Look for us on FaceBook and on Google+.

We look forward to hearing from you!
