Singer-songwriter and traditional musician, Chuck has been playing, writing and performing music of diverse influences for more than 30 years. He started out on guitar in the '60s, took up the mandolin in the '70s, then answered the fiddle's call in the early '80s to pursue an enduring passion for the dance music of Ireland.
Over the years Chuck has honed his craft at innumerable sessions, played with several ceili and contra dance bands, and appeared at folk festivals and clubs in Canada, the US and the UK. Wherever he goes Chuck builds musical connections and thrives on the exchange of ideas that fuel creativity and keep tradition alive, all the while continuing to explore more individual terrain through his own compositions.
