Longtime New Yorker Steve Welsh is an ebullient newcomer to the Dublin creative scene. After leaving Miami for a stint on the road touring the states, he settled in NYC where he cut his teeth on the downtown scene with the likes of Mike Moreno, Steve Bernstein, Andrew D'Angelo, Seamus Blake, Kenny Wolleson, and a host of others. A versatile improviser with reverence for jazz history, Steve is just as at home in the hard bop genre as he is in afro-cuban music, deep funk, glitch electronica, or just playing free.
