Hi I'm Mike, I live in Carrickfergus about seven miles outside Belfast, Northern Ireland. I'm 46 married with a 10 year old son and a wife who introduced me to the Irish music 20+ years ago and might now wish she hadn't.I still says it was her fault when she complains. I work in Queen's University of Belfast.
I play the bodhran and penny whistle and now and then have a go at singing. Recently the Traditional/Folk music scene in the South Antrim area of Northern Ireland has started to grow, with lot of establishments wanting this type of music on a regular basis.
