Greetings everyone!  Welcome to my page and meet the family.  

There's Arris, a 40 string Lyon and Healy prelude.  She's deep and bright and resonate.  Then there's Turlough, my 29 string music makers harp.  And of course me, the Minor Minstrel.

I’ve been playing for about 5 years now.  And if anyone had told me ten years ago I would be pursuing being musician for a living I would have laughed.  Yet here we are.  From the first lesson I took I longed to share this beauty that God gave us with the world.  I sought every opportunity to play and on the beautiful days of spring and summer there’s nothing funner than buskering out in town.  

I started YouTubing to expand my reach and also because I’ve dreamed of having a channel for years.  

But why Patreon?

Simply put everyone could use a little extra to help them get by.  Ultimately If I’m going to be able to continue doing harp for years to come I need it to be able to sustain and support itself.  Buskering is great and gigs are wonderful but very seasonal it seems.  I chose Patreon because I myself love the rewards and the freedom it gives us to understand more about the work and the people we follow.  

Here I want to get to know the people that enjoy my music better.  I want to give insight to the process behind everything and sneak peaks on what comes ahead.  I want to hear from you all on what you like best and what you think I should do next.  

So Thank You! 

Thank you for being my fan and taking the time to read this.  Lord willing, I hope to play, sing, paint, and provide clean entertainment for years to come.  

To God Be The Glory!

$1 may not seem like much, but if there’s anything I learned from buskering, never be ungrateful for the small things.  

In fact those little tips and thank yous add up way faster than you might think, and I am truly grateful for each one. 

So how should I thank you!?

$3 of $100 per month
$100 per month would really help me be able to maintain  and take car of my harps.
