Brendan’s father Felix, a Bronx native, was one of the most renowned piano accompanists in Irish music, a member of the legendary New York Ceili Band who recorded with Andy McGann, Joe Burke and other greats. Brendan has followed those footsteps well and is the first-call keyboard man in New York Irish music, including for the all-star Pride of New York ensemble. Like his dad, he also plays the flute. A teacher by profession, Brendan has lectured and done archival work at New York University, composed film scores and commercial sound designs.
