Gerry is another Kerry native, growing up in Kenmare. From an early age he was always interested in listening to, and playing with, the wonderful musicians of the day. Since then Gerry has recorded seven albums with a variety of musical partners, the latest of which is ‘Now She’s Purring’, an album of duets with Billy Clifford, which features Gerry playing Julia’s own famous Stroh phonofiddle (pictured, left).
Gerry has performed in many countries including the US, Alaska, France, Finland, Holland and has had students from as far afield as Japan come to him for tuition. He is passionate about passing on traditional music, with feeling and emotion, to a new generation.
