A big shout out to all our friends at this side of the Mississippi! My wife Kathleen and I had a great time visiting no less than 6 states in the USA this August and September and enjoyed performing at festivals, concerts and house concerts as well as attending our first US wedding and performing Johnny Duhan's epic song "The Voyage" at the couples wedding ceremony in Pennsylvania. We also received a warm welcome form my friend Joel at The famous Martin Guitar Company  receining a VIP tour of the factory and a surprise laid on by Joel in that I got to play a 1942 D45 from the museum! Thank you friends, old and new!

Welcome to Long Neck Music, the home of multiple music solutions. Hope you will find the service or product you are looking for or that you will enjoy browsing the contents.


We are based in Dripsey, County Cork , Ireland  concentrating primarily on providing entertainment and products in the acoustic music genres, especially Irish and other folk music, bluegrass and American Old Time music.

Pat Kelleher has been an accomplished musician for over 35 years and his first love is Irish folk singing and song writing in recent times. He is also a renowned five string banjo player with several different styles to his credit including folk style, old time (clawhammer) and bluegrass three finger picking style. He specialises in the long neck five string in particular. This long neck banjo was invented by the American folk legend Pete Seeger (whom Pat was privileged to have met). Pat's first inspiration was probably Irelands most renowned commercial folk singer, Luke Kelly. Kelly is one of those entertainers that you seldom hear, if ever, negative comments regarding his singing in particular and will never be equalled. Pat once again at age 17 was lucky to have met Luke at the Cork Opera house in July 1981 and had a little informal one to one session in the backstage bar where Luke, well renowned for his generosity insisted on Pat playing his long neck Vega (Pete Seeger) model banjo and singing a song. "The Travelling People" was the song Pat sang and then Luke returned the compliment by singing "Raglan Road", a memory to be cherished for ever. Luke had just retired his long neck Merlin banjo and explained how his sister picked up the Vega long neck in the U.S. for him.

Pat has been in consistent demand as a session recording musician, particularly as a banjoist over the years and has been continuously advised to become a professional entertainer. He has befriended some of the great folk greats including Tommy Makem, Bobby Clancy, Eric Bogle, Pete Seeger, Sean Cannon (Dubliners) and many more.

He performs throughout his native Ireland at festivals, theatres and pub venues and has toured in the USA, Germany, Switzerland and the UK. He has played support to many of the international greats including The Dubliners, The Furey Brothers & Davey Arthur, Christy Moore, Ryans Fancy, The Wolfe Tones, Bobby & Finbarr Clancy, Jim McCann and Brendan Grace to name but a few
