Are you ready to celebrate St. Patty’s Day the right way with authentic Irish music with two guys named Patrick?
The 2 Paddy’s are well-know around these here parts. They’ve played at Coco’s before for St. Patrick’s Day, and we’re happy to have them back!
Their music is traditional Irish which includes tunes, ballads and some of the usual from this highly celebrated holiday. Here are their bios from their website:
Paddy Kelly plays fiddle and guitar, along with bodhran and penny whistle on occasion. After growing up in Ottawa, his first “professional” group was the Descendants, (not related to the current Irish Descendants). In 1982, he joined a group called the Brigadoons, a Scottish group from Glengarry County, and was with them until 1997.
He currently resides in Glengarry County, Ontario, and continues to entertain crowds for all occasions. Paddy has also had the privilege of being inducted to the Glengarry Celtic Music Hall of Fame in May of 2007.
Paddy Maher plays several instruments, which include guitar, bass and Irish bouzouki. He has played in a variety of groups – country to blues to rock – but always returns to his Irish roots. In the late 80’s and early 90’s he played as a member of the Ottawa based trio, Brandy N’Port.
Come on down to Coco’s on Friday, March 11th and hear The 2 Paddy’s work their Celtic magic.
