At a very young age, Corey quickly grew to love the Irish music and dance which surrounded him. Advancing rapidly through the ranks of the competitive Irish dancing scene, Corey soon found himself on the National stage. Then, soon enough the World stage of competition. After competing for 14 years, Corey decided that he preferred his own artistic and rhythmic approach to the strict form required by the judges. Corey transitioned from competitions to stage productions and performance. He now dances with several notable bands including the esteemed Irish group Danú.
Corey’s musical talents began developing when he was 16. He started teaching himself tunes on the Irish style button accordion which he bought himself as a birthday present. Progressing quickly, he was soon studying under 7 time All Ireland Champion John Whelan, and began honing his technique under John’s tutelage. Corey found his true calling in traditional Irish music, and rapidly branched into other instruments. He plays many instruments including cittern, guitar, bodhran, and voice.
Join us every week for a pint, some great food, and live music at the pub on Friday and Saturday evenings, plus Sunday mornings during our Celtic Brunch. Located in our Main Pub or Outside for large events in Downtown Historic Bethlehem. Enjoy traditional Celtic music and a blend of contemporary acoustic music from very talented musicians — including Regina Sayles, Piper’s Request, Shaun Lally, Coloursound…and many more.
