Finley Mullally

(vocals, mandolin, guitar, bodhran)

Finley was born in Weston, Ontario and spent his adult life in Halifax, Nova Scotia where he lived from 1987 until 1998. A singer-songwriter and a member of SOCAN since 1993, and a former member of the East Coast Music Association, Finley was an active member of the vibrant East Coast music scene for many years.

From 1992-1995 he wrote and played with the original folk-music acoustic trio Gowan Brae out of Halifax. He composed and performed the original scores for two plays by Michael Melski. Finley co-wrote two songs for David Berger's CD, Oliver's Arrival, one of which, “Cheticamp”, received favourable airplay in the maritimes. Finley’s song, "The Fisherman's Wife", has been recorded by the Spirit of Newfoundland (2002), the McLean Sisters (2002), and Drimmondown (1995).

After a 7 year hiatus, Finley began playing professionally again as a solo act in Summer 2002. Riverthieves is his first major musical undertaking since leaving Nova Scotia. Finley lives in Perth, Ontario, with his wife, Leydin, and their three children. He is a high school teacher and a member of the Army Reserve where, as a lieutenant-colonel, he commands the 30th Field Artillery Regiment in Ottawa.
