A native of Brooklyn, Pat Mangan took violin lessons as a child and learned his Irish music from Brian Conway. Under Conway’s tutelage, he matured into a technically brilliant fiddler with a thorough grounding in the Sligo tradition. He parlayed those skills into a professional career in music, joining Riverdance on Broadway at the age of 16. He has since performed in over 30 countries but is back in New York, where he frequently performs in the Broadway hit show Come From Away and recently played with Clannad star Moya Brennan at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
