I’m very excited to be playing in this great band led by singer/actress Camille O’Sullivan! She is a wonderful and dynamic performer and if you are in NYC this December I encourage you to come see it at the new Irish Arts Center that is opening December 8th! Camille O’Sullivan captures the madness of our world, and the redemption in our coming together again, with an unforgettable musical journey to mark this extraordinary moment. Backed by a world class ensemble of musicians, including longtime collaborator Feargal Murray on piano, Camille’s rhapsodic interpretations of an eclectic assembly of songs from iconic songwriters, including David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, PJ Harvey and Radiohead.

“A courageous and singular performer … One of the most gifted interpreters of narrative songs yet to appear”—IRISH TIMES

The HANG is a ritual celebration of queerness, questions, and the eternity of a moment. Rooted in the jazz tradition and operatic form, it imagines the final hours of the life of Socrates, as he asks his friends to use every moment left to think on virtue. What transpires is a centuries-long communal consideration, full of jazz, dance, debates, and queer romps.

NOW AVAILABLE! FACE MASKS FOR MUSICIANS Beautiful and original design to wear while playing your Woodwind and Brass instruments!!

Unhappy with the prospect of not playing live with others and dissatisfied with other mask designs, I designed sturdily built to last, with reinforced seams, bridge, and double upper and lower elastic straps with adjusters for extra support and a perfect fit! Many thanks to Michael Winograd, Dan Blacksberg and my Mom for their help getting this venture off the ground. It’s still evolving but here is my funny promo video! Also if you don’t play horn you can use it for drinking fancy drinks during pandemic cocktail hour! Please feel free to message me with any questions you have!

You can check out mask designs and other handmade items at my ETSY store!
