Classically trained and currently Principal Second Violin in the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, David's 30 year career has seen him take up posts in symphony and ballet orchestras across Europe. However, the last three years has seen him follow one of his earliest loves, the music of Stefan Grappelli. In early 2002, he teamed up with Dublin jazz pianist Josh Johnston and the pair have toured around Ireland since, building up an audience with their enjoyable, melodic music. As well as the swing jazz that formed the genesis of the union, they also use elements of Latin Jazz and Blues and the classical influence has an undeniable contribution too. In late 2004, the duo released their first CD, A Minor Happiness. In June 2008, the duo released their 2nd CD, Notes Home.
