About Alan Crawford

At the age of three, Alan sat before his mother’s piano taking his first tinkle of the ivories, little knowing it would turn into a lifelong passion for music. By his teens his instrumental expertise had expanded to include the banjo, guitar, saxophone, clarinet, flute, mandolin and accordion. During his college years Alan formed The Breakaways, a six piece showband which played regular gigs across Ireland. Since going solo with Panache, Alan continues to play to a wide audience across the North and South of Ireland, and is highly renowned within the musical industry. He also combines performance with teaching and has a very successful music tuition school in Holywood.
