I first encountered Brendan when he opened for The Barra MacNeils at
Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center.
I was pretty new at that point in my
concert photography career, and I
was pretty excited about the shots
I got of him. I wanted to get them
to him since I thought he might be
able to use them, but I was hesitant because I thought he might think
I was trying to scam him some-
how. I’m really glad I did, because
he liked my work and I have ended
up helping him with numerous
projects over a number of years.
Brendan is the consummate Irish singer-songwriter. He has introduced
me to a wide world of artists that I was unaware of. He’s really really good!
