image preview

Hi, my name is Ben Reid. I am an uilleann piper and a travelling musician. Originally I'm from Canada, but since attending the University of Limerick six years ago, I've been travelling and playing trad music on the streets and in the pubs in France, Ireland, Australia, the US, and Canada. This year I decided to finally settle in Galway. I love the vibrant music scene here as well as the incredibly warm and welcoming people I've met while busking. I truly feel at home in this city and I'm grateful it has adopted me as well!

Yet when I came across my old Kennedy’s Revised Latin Primer, I was filled with an old familiar dread. There it all was, the boring conjunctions of verbs, and the declensions of nouns; all the miserable rules of grammar and syntax, possibly the driest book ever created, and not a joke between its covers.
