Program Notes

On the Kerry Shore is a tribute to a beautiful harbor town in Ireland named Dingle. The piece begins with a steady percussion texture, meant to represent placid seas with a cool morning breeze blowing in. Small snippets of the melody represent the gentle rise and fall of the surf on the shore. A subtle combination of ocean drum and ship’s bell complete the nautical picture.

On the Kerry Shore is dedicated to my wonderful wife Noel, who has been there for me every step of the way, including on our trip to Ireland.
