Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as ‘the best ever banjoist in the history of Irish music’, Gerry O’Connor has brought the banjo to places no other player had tread before. He has traveled the world - physically and musically - experimenting with everything from Irish to bluegrass to African and Asian, and back. Both as a soloist and as a member of the highly acclaimed Four Men and a Dog, Gerry has truly traced the banjo’s journey through the world of music.

Gerry’s journey continues with his most recent solo recording, “High Up Low Down” which features his unique treatment of Irish traditional music, American bluegrass and ground-breaking new compositions.

Gerry will be touring in Ireland in March / April and further afield later in the year.
