Hello! It's strange to see a Spanish name related to the Irish fiddle and the Irish music. But nowadays, it is becoming usual. Edges between countrys disappear. At the end, we will discover the music doesn't have icons or flags. Spacial and chronological frontiers are only invented, and the only thing that exists is the tend. Don't worry about these phylosophical questions: I don't write songs.
Band/artist history
I've played fiddle for eleven years, and playing Irish music since I left the school. I only learnt one year of basic violin. Then, I started to learn myself.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Just in sessions. There good sessions in southern Spain (Sevilla, Cádiz, Córdoba). I've enjoyed unforgettable moments there. Of course, I've gone to Ireland two times, Cork and Sligo, where I'm writing this.
Your musical influences
I started to play Irish music when I found the compilation of Irish sheetmusic from James and Francis O'Neil. After that, I got some recordings. Kevin Burke was my first referent. But the first time I was in Ireland, I discovered recordings of Andy McGann and Michael Coleman. I like other fiddlers like are Tommy Peoples, Michael Gorman, John Vessey, Paddy Cronin, Paddy Killoran, Martin Mulvihill, James Byrnes, Kathleen Collins, Paddy Reynolds, Brian Conway, Tony DeMarco...
What equipment do you use?
French one hundred years old fiddle, provided by Bellido in Granada, as the bow. Resin Pirastro. Strings Dominant (metal core).
Anything else?
Sorry for my bad english!
