A native of Brooklyn from a mixed Italian and Irish family, Tony learned a lot of his music from Longford-born fiddle great Paddy Reynolds. House sessions with Brian Conway and Martin Wynne steeped him in the Sligo tradition but Tony has a style very much his own, full of melodic variation and a touch of bluegrass influence. He issued a solo recording, The Sligo Indians, for Smithsonian Folkways and leads a long-running Sunday session at the 11th Street Bar. Tony also organizes an annual New York Trad Fest concert that presents Irish and other ethnic traditional music.
