Event description

Description

A former winner of ‘Irish Traditional Musician Of The Year Award', Paddy Keenan is one of the greatest Irish pipers of his generation. The founder member of the Irish legendary group ‘The Bothy Band,’ Paddy has been described by Donal Lunny as ‘the Jimmy Hendrix of the pipes.’ He will be joined by the excellent singer, songwriter and guitarist J. Eoin, for a night of stunning Irish music.

Paddy Keenan stems from a Travelling family, who were steeped in Irish traditional music. Both Paddy's father and grandfather were acclaimed pipers. Paddy took up the pipes at the age of 10 and he played his first major concert at The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, when he was just 14.

Paddy's flowing, open-fingered style of playing can be traced directly back to the style of his father, grandfather, and the great travelling piper Johnny Doran.

Paddy often fuses ‘ Irish trad’ with blues, rock and Jazz and his virtuosity has been been compared to the great Jazz musician, John Coletrane

Paddy has toured the globe, playing concerts and festivals in the US, Canada, Ireland, Europe, Israel, Australia and New Zealand. As Paddy now lives in The United States, this is a very rare chance to see him live in Concert in the UK.
