Colin, who hails from Co. Armagh, grew up listening to the big showbands of the time, such as Brian Coll, Philomena Begley, Gene Stuart and Hugo Duncan etc. It wasn’t until the mature age of 50, Colin took to playing the keyboard and is now highly respected by his peers as an accomplished keyboard player and one-piece artist on the country music Social Dance scene.
During his short career Colin has played support to many well-known stars such as Johnny Brady,
Susan McCann, John McNicholl, Stephen Smyth,
Joe Davitt, to name just a few.
Following the outbreak of the Covid 19 Virus Colin has used the Facebook platform to provide on-going, free entertainment with many elderly and housebound listeners looking forward to the twice weekly shows.
