An accomplished multi-Instrumentalist on guitar, tenor banjo, Irish bouzouki and mandolin, Tony began playing music as a teenager in the northern suburbs of Melbourne playing hard rock and anything else above 100 decibels! He also dabbled in finger style and folk guitar eventually falling in love with jazz guitar. Later he began flat picking and followed up with Irish music sessions and the rest is history. Tony has played alongside some of the most respected names in bluegrass and Irish music. He has written a number of books, has won or been placed in a number of musical competitions and has released three CDs of Irish Music.
Irish Tenor Banjo
General Traditional Irish Music Tunes – This would be open to anyone playing Irish tunes on any instrument. For these workshops, participants receive a small booklet comprising some tunes, a bit about picking technique, sometimes scales, and include a CD of the music played at a moderate tempo to take home with them. There is no charge for this.
