Though he now lives in Tennessee, Dylan established his mighty reputation as a fiddle player in New York. He grew up in the Hudson Valley town of Highland where his parents Tom and Anne encouraged his musical bent. He took lessons from Rose Flanagan and listened intently to two Hudson Valley master musicians, Roscommon-born flute and whistle player Mike McHale and concertina player Fr. Charlie Coen. He is a senior All-Ireland champion and, according to no less an authority than Brian Conway, “one of the finest fiddlers of his generation.” He has recorded with The Yanks, with Dan Gurney and with flute player Josh Dukes.
