The Music
Alvins' inspiration comes from a love of American Country and Irish Folk Ballads. A true musician though, he enjoys music of all genres. A fact, obvious in his vast repertoire of music that never fails to entertains audiences of all ages. His gigs have earned him regular bookings at many well known and diverse venues. You may well have seen him perform in The Ashdown Park Hotel-Gorey, Co. Wexford, O'Tools-Aughrim, Co. Wicklow, Corner House-Arklow, Co. Wicklow, The Brook House-Arklow, Co. Wicklow, The Igo Inn-Ballybrack Co. Dublin, Jack's Tavern-Camolin, Co. Wexford, The Mellick Inn-Mount Mellick, Co. Laois, The Bellyard-Monasterevin, Co. Kildare, The Travellers Rest-Kildare, Butler's of Arklow, Co. Wicklow, The 19th-Courtown, Co. Wexford, O'Connors-Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, Crablane-Tullow, Co. Carlow, Donohoe's-Enniscorthy, Co.

'Covers and Tributes' though are only a part of Alvin's live show, his original compositions have been met with critical acclaim, four of which featured on his second album entitled "ALVIN", 'Girl Like You', 'Happy Days', 'I Don't Want To Cry' and 'I'll Make It Through'. Alvin is currently working on new compositions for a new album, due for release in 2013.

'Happy Days' and 'Beautiful Affair' have been popular requests and have been played regularly on local and national radio stations.

A self taught musician, Alvin has mastered such diverse instruments as the guitar, harmonica, keyboard, tin whistle, mandolin and the accordion. His first love is for the guitar which he also teaches. His tuition is highly sought after as he tailors individual courses suited to individual abilities; and equipped with his own studio recording facilities, students are given the chance to record their own work. This provides a unique opportunity for students to hear their achievements and where they need to improve.

The studio facility is also ideal for any budding artists looking for a studio to record their demo tracks. Alvin is delighted to support new talent and can offer both studio time, backing tracks and advice if needed.

On this page you can hear a selection of songs from his second album "ALVIN" including one of his original compositions, 'Happy Days'.

Alvin is also currently one half of a duo called "Mixed Up". Recently formed they are also available for gigs playing covers from a wide variety of genres (hence the name). On this page you can listen to demo tracks and unreleased work that is being 'played around with' by "Mixed Up".Give them a listen, your feedback is welcome and very much appreciated.
