Chris began performing at bars and pubs while completing his degree in performance music at the University of Windsor. Chris started out playing open mic nights at Patrick O’Ryan’s Irish Public House and soon became a regular fixture at a dozen Windsor and Detroit bars.
After three years of playing both solo shows and as a member of the Celtic rock band The Distractions, Chris returned home to Eastern Ontario, playing in a variety of bands and duos before starting to concentrate on his own solo show.
Chris has captivated crowds from university students to legionnaires, with a collection of songs that range from current top 40 rock hits, to Scottish ballads. While tending to focus on a fast-paced mix of rock and modern Celtic favourites, Chris is always up to the challenge of satisfying the requests of any crowd.
