Paddy is a versatile performer who is at home on the concert stage, at festivals, corporate functions or your wedding or other special event. His highland bagpiping outfit features a smart green Irish kilt. He is noted for his striking appearances at historical and medieval re-enactments.

“For bagpiping, I can give plenty of value i.e. play in background, outside, stay to pipe couple into dining hall.. fill in quieter times with some fluting, etc. I can wear kilt outfit… I cannot so easily, however, double up on both pipes, wearing kilt outfit, so it is usually best to book me for one or other instrument.”
