«Billy McComiskey» - biography, albums, songs, video clips
Accordionist Billy McComiskey is a Brooklyn native who began playing the button accordion at six years old, inspired by his uncle’s playing. At fifteen the budding box player was taken under the wing of the legendary Sean McGlynn. McComiskey is a master of the East Galway accordion style that characterizes the playing of so many of New York’s best accordionists. He has recorded with The Irish Tradition, Trian and as a soloist; his compositional skills and his All-Ireland championships attest to McComiskey’s mastery of the button box.
