Notes from an Attic

If you hear strange noises in the attic … then it's probably me!

About this site
I’ve created this website ‘Notes from an Attic’ to share my love of contemporary Irish/Scottish traditional music. I play tin whistle, guitar, keyboard and ukulele and make my own recordings using GarageBand on an iPad. My recording studio is in an attic room of my home, hence the title of this website.
