One of nine children born into a deep-rooted Irish American family from Long Island, NY, Andy Cooney has been singing Irish songs literally all his life, beginning at an early age directed by his Dublin born grandfather, Andy Feehan. His professional career began at the age of 17, when he began appearing in many of the well-known Irish establishments in the New York area entertaining audiences with his piano playing and singing. In 1986, at age 19, the well-known Irish bandleader, Paddy Noonan, asked Andy to tour with his show. For the next several years Andy toured with Paddy Noonan gaining national exposure for his talent and winning a place in the hearts of all those who heard him from coast to coast. In 1994, Andy struck out on his own and hasn’t looked back.
