Short background of experience:
I'm from County Offaly in the Republic of Ireland. Outside of music my full time job is working as an Education Support Worker at Linn Moor School. I work with children with learning difficulties and absolutely love it!
I am completely self taught, teaching myself to play guitar from the age of 13. In 2013 I moved to Spain and spent two seasons gigging in Irish pubs. In 2014 before moving to Aberdeen, I toured America playing gigs in, Atlantic city, Tampa bay, New York and Washington D.C.
When I was learning how to play I used to listen to a lot of rock and heavy metal music like Van Halen and Def Lepard. Nowadays I'm more into the likes of The Pogues, The Dubliners, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and The Beatles.
I enjoy playing Carmelite because it's a really relaxed atmosphere. I get to play the music that I like to play and always get a friendly response from customers and staff.
Come in and listen to some 'craig' and my great music......
