Paddy’s Pig
is an Irish band equally at home in a small dark pub at midnight or on a vast festival stage in broad daylight. Striking a balance between folk traditionalism and rock-n-roll energy, they combine a distinctive male-female vocal approach with a diverse song list – everything from timeless pub standards and toe-tapping instrumentals to modern Irish rock and authentic original songs.
