I grew up in County Armagh, Ireland, an area that has a great wealth of traditional irish/folk musicians. Playing music from the age of 5 has made music, particularly irish traditional music, a second language.
I was lucky enough to be brought up in a musical family. My parents encouraged my brothers, sister and I to play from an early age.
I picked up a mandolin at the age of 5, quickly graduating to banjo, and started entering competitions such as the Fleadh, winning an all Ireland medal at the age of 12. Since then, there have been many bands, plenty of session work and a few relocations.
In 2011 I moved to London and have been playing music with various artists and teaching banjo/mandolin since. If you need a banjo player or would like banjo lessons, send a private message through my contacts page.
"The musical highlight of the afternoon was a pair of banjo solos by young Hugh O'Neill, who demonstrated amazing high-speed dexterity as he got more notes from his strings than I would have thought humanly possible, with all the relaxed ease of an All-Ireland Champion" (Bill Lynch, Set Dancing News, 2007)
