Tom Creegan and Dale Russ visit the Littlefield Celtic Center for a night of lively Irish music sure to entertain. Tom and Dale will also be offering workshop and private lesson opportunities for Uilleann pipers and fiddlers.

Tom Creegan grew up in Dublin and learning in one of the best possible environments, the Pipers’ Club in Thomas Street. He played extensively in Europe and Canada before moving to Seattle where he fell in with a bad crowd, joining the Irish Pipers’ Club, at that time under the aegis of Denis Brooks. Tom was blessed to learn much of the depth and breadth of the tradition from Denis.

Tom played for many years with The Suffering Gaels, along with Finn MacGinty, Conor Byrne and Dale Russ. He has also been lucky enough to meet and play with many other wonderful musicians, including Kevin Burke, Micheál Ó’Domhnaill and Randal Bays. Tom now plays in a band called Crumac, still alongside renowned fiddler, Dale Russ.

He has many years of teaching experience, first at the Thomas Street Pipers’ Club, and later in Seattle with Cumann na bPíobairí (Irish Pipers’ Club), as well as at many music festivals and schools. Tom has served two terms as editor of The Pipers’ Review, the club newsletter that is distributed throughout North America and to many points beyond. He continues to live in Seattle along with Lisa and sons, Dermot and Niall.


Dale Russ has enjoyed a career of performing fiddle in the United States and abroad and has an extensive background and expertise in fiddle instruction. He first began playing the fiddle in 1973 when he moved to Washington. His intuitive talent on the instrument is evidenced through the fact that he is a self-taught fiddler, contributing as well to his excellent abilities as a fiddle instructor. Dale has taught fiddle at many workshops and music camps, including the Lark in the Morning Summer Camp in Mendocino and the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend. As a performer, Dale has enjoyed touring as part of “The Suffering Gaels,” a traditional Irish band, and “Jody’s Heaven,” which has toured in Japan.
