Description

Multi-instrumentalist, multimedia director and composer “Finn the fiddler” first started playing fiddle at age 10 and by 16 was a two-time finalist at the All-Ireland championships. He is equally proficient in oldtime and bluegrass and tours the world playing all three. In 2009, he received a Fulbright-MtvU Fellowship to co-write and co-produce an album with malawi pop icon Peter Mawanga that musically captures ten experiences of HIV/AIDS through song in Malawi, Southern Africa. 

The result, Mau a Malawi: Stories of AIDS was released on October 14th, 2011 as a multimedia show at the University of North Carolina’s Memorial Hall. Sales from the studio album Mau a Malawi are invested in programs to keep vulnerable Malawian children in school and empower them through the arts.

“The inspiring cross-cultural performances on this beautiful album “Mau A Malawi: Stories of AIDS” remind us of the human cost of this disease as well as the imperative to unite in creating an AIDS-free generation. —Ambassador Eric Goosby, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator

Mau a Malawi has been a platform for years of musical collaboration between the two artists who now tour blending the traditional sounds of their native continents in exciting original music.
