Paddy's Whiskers

Paddy's Whiskers Paddy's Whiskers - Footstompin' Live Celtic and Irish Band

Paddy's Whiskers are a Torbay base 3 or 4 piece combo who play a full on mix of live Irish, Celtic and American dance music and song.

Alex, Jules, Andrew and Simon are well seasoned folk who between them fiddle, mandola, bodhran, banjo, whistles, mandolin, bouzouki and bass guitar (though not all at the same time!).

Their full power style is perfect for pub gigs, festivals, weddings, parties, ceilidhs and barn dances. Always experimenting they also enjoy mixing traditional music with contemporary beats, loops and drum machines.

A night with the Whiskers will include fast and furious Irish jigs and reels, melancholy slow airs, some highland mist, and a wild rove through a selection of well known Irish and American songs and tunes. The Whiskers also have a resident DJ (Andrew) who can provide a great disco/DJ set to end the night if required.

In August 2011, Paddy's Whiskers released their first CD, "Tales From Orient Road" which can be purchased through their website.
