Alex Monaghan has been playing traditional music since 1978, and writing about it since 1993. His first reviews were published in Issue 2 of Living Tradition Magazine. Having lived in Edinburgh and Dublin for roughly a decade apiece, he is now a Celtic musical missionary in deepest England.
Concentrating on instrumental music, Alex's interest includes Celtic, Scandinavian, French, Balkan and Klezmer music, as well as many North American styles. He is a regular contributor to Irish Music Magazine, Piping Today and Folkworld, as well as Living Tradition, and also writes for festivals and record companies. While living in Dublin, Alex wrote and presented several radio series on European and North American traditional music.
