“May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck, brightened by a song in your heart and warmed by the smiles of the people you love.” - Irish Saying
For the Love of Music
Answering the call
It all started on a tiny street in the north end of Columbus, Ohio. Stumbling upon his uncle's guitar in his grandma's attic Erin was called to pick it up and figure it out. With his uncle's blessing he took that guitar home and started learning all the chords. Playing along and singing to records from the Beatles, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Pink Floyd, The Clancy Brothers, and even Barry Manilow for heaven's sake, he began to hone his musicianship.
Today Erin Varley is a well rounded musician with music stylings touching all genres. He has performed in coffee houses, parish halls, small bars, big bars, school auditoriums, retirement homes, county fairs, and national fairs. He has done weddings, funerals and wakes. Erin has played his music throughout the midwest and east coast and has even sang in Ireland at the famous Clayton Whites hotel in Wexford and the Great Southern in Kilarney. (non paying, spontaneous late night hotel lobby type thing. They never saw it coming)
With set lists made up of hundreds of cover songs and plenty of originals you can be sure that Erin Varley will share his passion and love for music with the audience.
